Santa Pants Garden Flag...

I whipped up this Garden Stake flag today for my bare stake beside my driveway -- Santa Pants Flag. It measures 12 1/2" wide x 18 1/2" long (from top of tab to bottom of boot).

I used Red Heart Super Saver yarn and a 6.0mm hook.  It only took a couple hours from start to finish....
