PHOTO NOTE: The colors of the blue/green stocking are truer in the photo of that stocking alone.

A special stocking worked in Worsted Weight wool on size 6 sixteen inch circular needles. Stranded colorwork, never more than 2 colors in a round. Knit in the round, a triple braid makes up the cuff, a beautiful ocean blue-green background, a bright kiwi green for the nordic all-over pattern, ruby red for the toe and heel. Optional ruby red berries can be overstitched for an extra punch of color. All combine to make a beautiful and festive stocking to grace your fireplace and await St. Nick’s goodies!
