Bargello Pine Trees Stocking

This is a free pattern from The Caron Collection (Caron-net.com). They offer quite a few really nice ones. My ANG CyberPointer’s chapter worked on ornaments using various types of stitching. My favorite was the Bargello Pine Trees.

And, I love how it turned out. The top rows of Bargello are Fuzzy Stuff. The finisher that Nimble Needle uses added the braid and tassels to match the darker blue but for the backing used a lighter purple that matches the center top motif. Just wonderful & is in plenty of time to enjoy for the 2014 holiday season.

I got some interesting comments/input from Carole L on Facebook’s Needlepoint Nation that I wanted to share: “Just out of curiosity, since I liked this design so much, I went looking to see who the original designer of this stocking was, only to discover that this is from a 1997 McCall’s magazine! (with permission of course) I really like it, and I would not have guessed that it was an older design. Some things are just classic. They don’t mention the designer’s name, sadly, but I think from the way the intro is phrased it must be Lois Caron herself. She has some lovely designs.”
