It’s on the Jean Greenhowe website - just thought I’d post in case anyone else is daft enough!
They’re only about 4 inches long.
Dd is once again manning (womanning) the raffle stall for Gdcs’ school Christmas fair, so I thought some mini stocking bunting might be a jolly decoration. They’ll be more spread out, but still a few more to go.

Many thanks Witzend. I hope the bunnies in baskets are going well.

I always love seeing your beautiful knitting Witzend.

I can’t knit a stitch.

Advent calendar sprung to mind, but have I the patience to do 24? ? DD might get it by next year ?

Many thanks Witzend. I hope the bunnies in baskets are going well.

Bunnies will be in the charity sale today! Dh and I will be along later. ?they won’t be hanging around all unloved.

Delighted to learn this Witzend. I’m sure no one will be able to resist.

Ro60, a few years ago I crocheted 24 small Christmas stockings for DH to make into an Advent calendar. It was a fun project to do if a little fiddly.

I love that idea.

One year, when I was volunteering in a charity shop, I made lots of Father Christmas badges. We put them on the counter next to the till and they shot out at £1 each (plus Gift Aid). The customers were requesting more and I was totally fed up with them in the end but they did make quite a lot of money for the charity.

What were they made of, Liz46? Not that I need another Christmas project, but I’ve got a lot of red and white yarn to use up….

Using DK, ravelry has a lovely free pattern for a Santa brooch, Witzend.
Can you resist?
