Sexy and sweet thigh high stockings with an easy to memorize lace pattern and visually appealing decreases down the back thigh. These stockings are intended to be worn with garters, the bands are elastic enough to give them stretch and make them fit a variety of leg sizes, but they will not stay up on their own.
Make them in black to have a pair that looks like tights when worn with skirts and dresses, or a pair in white to have a very fashionable accessory that complements your cutest pair of shoes. Knit a pair in hot pink, and you will be the talk of the knitting group.
One Size, stretches to fit up to 22” along cuff. These may be a bit saggy if you are particularly petite, but they will stretch to fit a variety of leggy ladies.
Please note that these stockings are intended to be worn with garters, they will not stay up on their own.
