Patternum Novum: Felted Sweater Stocking

After posting about Daniel's Christmas Stocking last week, a few of you asked if I was going to write it up as a pattern. Your wish is my command! Here it is -- the Felted Sweater Stocking. As a Christmas gift to knitblogland, I've priced this pattern quite low (good until the end of January), but don't let the low price fool you. $2 still gets you photos, charts and written directions for the cables, and a fully tech edited pattern.

I know Christmas is only a week away, but it's still possible to whip one of these up in time to hang on your mantle!

$2 (from now through January 31) via Ravelry (no account needed)
