The pineapple motif ingeniously decorates the back of these lacy stockings to create the shaping needed for the calf.

Directions are given for size Small (S). Changes for Medium (M) and Large (L) are in parentheses. Length of stockings can easily be changed and is noted in pattern. Stockings measure 9½ (10¼, 11)“ (24 26, 28 cm) around calf; 6¾ (7½, 8¼)” (17 19, 21 cm
