Physical description

Knitted stocking of multicoloured wool. It is predominantly red, black and white with blue, yellow and green detailing on the flower and bird motifs. The top is encircled with a red pattern of poppies and crosses, which is itself permeated with a plain blue band. The rest of the stocking is decorated with birds and flowers, split by a vaguely arrow-shaped figure filled with shapes and a heart.
