I love this project! The holly leaves and berries on the cuff set this design apart from so many others. When I got the Christmas decorations out this year, I sadly discovered that a mouse had gotten into my stash of stockings. I didnt have time to work up new ones, so I had to settle for some inexpensive ones from a discount store. Not next year! Plastic tubs and new stockings!

Cannot find the embroidery chart. Where is it?

This pattern is wonderful and I'm almost finished but am having trouble finding the embroidery chart mentioned to finish the holly berries. Help please?

This is so pretty and easy ) I had to check out Mickey S. of Crochet Crowd for guidance in making the bobbles, also I added more rows of white for the top and bottom of the cuff and reduced the bobbles as stated in the pattern. Thank you so much for this pattern )
