Tyrolean Christmas Stocking

A Christmas Stocking with typical Austrian motifs, realized with variegated cotton threads.

Little beads give a special charm to the sky. Three bands of lace divide the stitched sections.

This stocking was awarded an Honorable Mention on a Christmas Stocking Motif Contest on Caron web site of December 1998. It encloses some typical old Austrian motives as a tribute to my beloved Austria and Austrian friends.

Stitching and finishing instructions included in the chartpack.
