Another great Christmas stocking design by Rachel Nash Law--featuring a Possum & Pines! In the mountains of Appalachia we love our possums because:
- they eat deer ticks!
- don't spread rabies, and
- are the only North American marsupial.
The kit is packaged in a gift box with a satin ribbon, along with a gift tag to record the knitter and the recipient.
The kit includes U.S. Wool in white, red, grey and green and small amounts of black and pink for possum details.
This pattern is suitable for intermediate knitters comfortable with stranded knitting. The stocking is knitted circularly from the toe up.
