Become a stocking-making factory with these quick and sweet ornaments by Doris Chan. She offers the pattern for free on her blog, along with a story about how her mom always went crazy decorating for the holidays and passed the crochet pattern on to her. This is the perfect way to use up little scraps—these would also make great gift toppers, or, if you made one with a few more rounds, a pretty gift card holder.

I sat down and tried it, and since they were so easy (on the 23rd of December), I went on to make 18 for place markers for Christmas dinner. Instead of crocheting it shut, I liked them with the cuff end open, and stuffed with candy-cane kisses. And you know, they went over like they were the fanciest things in the world! Thanks - not only was it a great way to use old odds n ends, but the variety was such fun, I forgot to be nervous!

Love the cranberry and teal green combo - and the winter white is so old-fashioned... like the color of popcorn. For some reason these are the fastest things to make, and everyone loves them forever. I'll bet they'd be great on presents too, for that extra touch.
