Pattern Description:

I wanted to design a series of traditional Christmas stockings using various different motifs and certain repeating themes. The Holly & Snowflake stocking is one of four different stockings in the series.

It's always about the details for me when creating a knitted piece, and this stocking has some lovely ones. It begins with a two-color cast-on and knitted braid and progresses through several different motifs and color changes. Use duplicate stitch after the stocking is finished to personalize for someone special.

Holly & Snowflake stocking is pictured with the Cross & Leaf stocking, another in the series also available on Craftsy. These stockings may be purchased individually, or as a set called Fair Isle Stockings II.
