I stumbled upon this pattern, Little Christmas Socks by Sucrette, and decided I needed to crochet one up immediately! For hers, it looks like she used worsted or Aran wt yarn. I decided to use some of the leftover fingering wt yarn I'd used for my Peppermint Twist Socks. I grabbed a US "F" hook and my sock yarn and went to town. This was a super simple and very quick little crochet! Infact, I have enough leftover sock yarn that I am considering crocheting a bunch as gift embellishments that can be used as ornaments.
So if you are a newbie crocheter and are running out of time to make something handmade for the holidays, consider this quickie pattern! You can use up scraps in any weight and even make them in non-traditional colors like Sucrette did for a super-cute ornie!
