Imagining an old-fashioned “wedding stocking,” Deborah Newton created these lacy yet rustic over-the-knee socks. Beginning with a wide rib, an array of lace patterns gradually decrease in width to shape the stocking. As intricate as the ice crystals on a wintry windowpane, these lovely stockings will keep you warm on the coldest day.
