Summary: Here’s a gorgeous Christmas stocking in traditional holiday colors and classic Norwegian 8-pointed star motif. The pattern was originally published in the format of a holiday greeting card.

Background: “I did this card/pattern so many years ago!” smiles Erickson-Schweitzer. “This stocking features corrugated ribbing and stranded colorwork.

The pattern was originally published in the format of a holiday greeting card with abbreviated instructions. The terminology and writing style pre-dates the official launch of the Jackie E-S/HeartStrings pattern line, but patterns like this are timeless. Merry Christmas and wishes for a Happy New Year of enjoyable knitting.”

Other notes: Classic cuff-down, in-the-round, seamless sock construction with a grafted toe. Stranded Fair Isle colorwork pattern is charted. Needle size is a guess (the designer recommends US 7/4.5 mm here); use whatever gives you the suggested gauge (although size/gauge is not as critical as having a firm fabric).
