Knitting Pattern: Christmas Stocking Ornament Gift Card Holder

Free Knitting Pattern: Christmas Stocking Gift Card Holder Ornament
Sometimes, giving a gift card during the holidays can feel a little impersonal, so I like to dress them up with a mini Christmas stocking ornament.

These mini Christmas stockings are great because they are fairly quick to knit, you can use up leftover yarn bits from your stash and you can practice your sock knitting techniques on a small scale.
