Your kit to knit these smashing decorations. These are knitted flat on straight needles to represent Christmas stockings. Either as Advent Bunting, numbered one to 24, or simply as miniature Christmas Stockings for bunting with stripes and festive motifs of Christmas Tree, Pudding, Star and Snowflake. Plenty big enough for a small wrapped treat or a chocolate or two...
Also ideal as knitted treats for end of school term - a friend has knitted them for her grandson's classmates!
