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. But this traditional design is always popular. So even though the original holiday greeting card format is no longer available, you may now purchase a pdf version of the pattern instructions in downloadable format. Norwegian Christmas Stocking is a classic top-down sock construction in holiday colors of corrugated ribbing, stranded knitting, and contrast heel flap and grafted toe. The pattern features a classic Norwegian 8-pointed star motif presented in chart format. I did this card/pattern way back in 1991! The terminology and writing style pre-dates the official launch of the Jackie E-S/HeartStrings pattern line, but patterns like this are timeless. Anyway, you might get a kick out of how I say "round" needles rather than calling them circular needles. The finished size is a nice roomy 17" leg length and 13" foot length. Use any worsted weight yarn in your choice of 3 color and whatever needle size gives you the suggested gauge of 5 stitches per inch (we used needle size US 7/4.5 mm. here, although size/gauge is not as critical as having a firm fabric). Yarns used to knit the sample model shown are Top of the Lamb Worsted and Lamb's Pride Worsted, both by Brown Sheep Company. GAUGE 5 stitches = 1 inch in stockinette stitch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Leg length 17", foot length 13" PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Brown Sheep Company/Top of the Lamb Worsted and Lamb's Pride Worsted
