Summary: This pattern gives an alternative for an ornament size as well (sizes are in brackets). If you choose the ornament, you will need US 5 needles and a gauge of 5.75 stitches per inch over stockinette.

From the pattern description: We’ve covered everyone’s feet but couldn’t just stop there. So here are a stocking to hold Santa’s offerings and a wee look-alike ornament for the tree to keep it company.

Note: Winter Solstice is the December pattern design by Catherine Wingate, originally published by HeartStrings FiberArts in The Sock Calendar book along with 11 other monthly-themed sock patterns. Winter Solstice is now also available as an individual pattern.
