The Mini Country Cottage Stocking is a quick project, perfect for the holidays! Use as a gift card holder, tree ornament, fill with treats, or add to wrapped gifts! Each mini stocking uses minimal yarn so it’s a great way to use up left over scraps of yarn you may have laying around!
I think these would be great to give as gifts for teachers, add a gift card to a coffee shop or your favorite local business! Or if you are a teacher or there are children in your life, you could make these for them and fill with treats!

The Mini Country Cottage Stocking is apart of a trio, where I took 3 of my original Country Cottage designs, the Country Cottage Stocking, Country Cottage Mittens, and Country Cottage Beanie and made mini versions!
You can find the ad-free, printable PDF from my Etsy shop and Ravelry. This PDF includes all 3 of the patterns in one!
The original Country Cottage Stocking was the very first pattern of the Country Cottage collection! I designed that pattern in 2019 and loved the stitches and texture so much I continued to design more patterns with it!
Around Christmas of 2021, I had the idea of making a mini Country Cottage Stocking but ran out of time to design it. Now in 2022, I got the chance to design it plus some other Country Cottage minis!
I used Red Heart Super Saver for my Mini Country Cottage Stocking, but feel free to use any medium (4) weight yarn! One of the best parts of this pattern is that is uses a minimal amount of yarn so you can use any left over yarn you may have in your stash!
