If you are a fan of Sesame Street you will recognize the Yip Yips. These can be used for stockings, or for hanging up to store little socks or blocks or any other small items. I made them to use as stockings and then sent them home with the kids to use as they please.
They are made with Bernat Blanket yarn they crochet up quickly. I made nine of these in a week and a half! They are easy to do while watching Christmas specials on TV. The pattern is free on Ravelry and you can see it here: Yip Yip Stockings
