Just in case anybody else might like to make one....

As per a previous recent post, I had a recent request for 3 of these!

All the patterns I found online were much too intricate/fiddly for me, so I used the basic small stocking pattern in Jean Greenhowe’s Christmas Special booklet, only I did it with 2 strands of DK and on size 7 (4.5mm) needles instead of 11s, and worked a few extra rows, so it’s come out at about 18” /45 cm long.
Decorations inc. the elf were all directly from, or slightly adapted from, other patterns in the same JG booklet. None of which need any advanced knitting skills.

I have 2 more to make!
