I am hosting a KAL for this pattern in my group, Melissa Lemmons Designs, starting January 15, 2012. Come join in the fun!

Celebrate rather than bemoan the explosion of bugs that summer brings with your knitting. Moths float on swirls of summer breezes on these lace knee high stockings.

Shoe size for sock: S (L)/6-8 (8-10) US Women’s

The stitch pattern used on this sock is very stretchy in both directions. You want the sock to have negative ease both in the circumference and in the length in order to open up the stitches. The finished lengths given are the minimum lengths for that size. Directions for adjusting length are included in pattern. Circumference for Socks: 6.5 (7.5)”/16.5 (19) cm Length for Socks: 8 (9.25)”/20.3 (23.5) cm

These knee highs are knit in the round from the toe up with a double forked short row heel and an invisible sewn bind-off on the cuff. The socks are cast on using Judy’s Magic Cast On and are increased using lifted increases. Charts are provided for all sizes. The pattern is mirrored on the two socks so make sure you are using the correct chart at all times.

Any method of small diameter circular knitting (i.e. dpns, magic loop, two circulars) can be used for this pattern. However, the start of row moves during the course of the leg chart, so this pattern may not be suited to working two at a time.

This pattern was originally published by Sanguine Gryphon.

When printing, note that the charts for size small are on pages 4-6, and the charts for size large on pages 7-9.
