Christmas is going to be real ruff for those of us who don't have this Doggone Cute DIY Christmas Stocking for our precious pooches. If you have a dog then you know that they are just another member of the family, so why not make a DIY stocking for them to open on Christmas morning, too? This Christmas crochet pattern is perfect for your furry friend because it's festive yet fitting for that four-legged pal of yours. There is both a paw and a tasty looking bone on the front of this soft green stocking for dogs.
