Latest in my series of holiday stocking designs, this stunning new addition is richly carved with twist stitch stars (or snowflakes!) to light up the holiday season. Knit top down in worsted weight yarn, the pattern will engage and entertain the knitter while enchanting its recipients. With both written and charted instructions, it’s a great way to use that special, single skein of heritage wool. Oslo is incredibly giftable and a festive, quick knit to sit back and enjoy while getting your holiday spirit on.
