Anna Makarovna's Secret Stockings
From Schoolhouse Press
Although Beverly Royce’s book, Notes on Double Knitting, is out of print, we have made an instruction leaflet from one of the most requested patterns in that book: Anna Makarovna’s Secret Stockings (from Tolstoy’s War and Peace). Two socks knitted simultaneously - one inside the other! Beverly professes a unique method of Double Knitting; she writes, “It is a good way to test skills, mystify friends, challenge knitting abilities and patience, and amuse children.” Recommended for experienced double Knitters -- or bold knitters who like to leap into the unknown.
Print version comes in a 3-hole, archival quality sheet protector.
Anna Makarovna is a character in War and Peace, described as knitting a sock, then with a flourish, showing the two completed socks, one inside the other.
