Bon Vivant Stockings

Crochet
July 2014
Misti Alpaca Tonos Carnival
Fingering / 4 ply (14 wpi) ?
30 stitches and 56 rows = 4 inches
2.75 mm (C)
872 yards (797 m)
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

The pineapple motif ingeniously decorates the back of these lacy stockings to create the shaping needed for the calf. Rows of slip stitch
worked through the back loops alternate with rows of double crochet to allow for an elastic, comfortable fit. The heel and toe are worked last, making it easy to replace these areas after they wear out.
