Gentleman's Golfing Stockings

Knitting
September 2013
Fingering / 4 ply (14 wpi) ?
36 stitches and 44 rows = 4 inches in Ribbing
US 1 - 2.25 mm
900 - 930 yards (823 - 850 m)
Adult: 14" from top of cuff to beg of heel, 8" foot circumference

Original design from Weldon’s Practical Stocking Knitter (1904), this pair of stockings features a fancy cuff in a lovely colorwork design and ribbed leg. The original stockings had a small diamond pattern on the ribbed leg; I’ve simplified the design by eliminating the diamonds (the pattern suggested you “cut seventy-five pieces of the contrast color wool, each quarter of a yard long” and knit each little diamond, then work in all those ends.

3 skeins of the MC is plenty of yarn to add additional length to the leg and/or foot; only a small amount of the CC is needed to work the cuffs.
