The Nordic Christmas Stocking has a traditional stars-and-nets motif on the front, and diagonal stripes on the back.

I knit mine with Hifa 2, but any sport weight wool would work as a substitute. Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift is an easy-to-find alternative, with an amazing color range to choose from.

The first printing of the pattern contains a typo in the Star Chart for the Leg:

Round 20, stitch 48 should be white (instead of black).
