Knitted from the top down, these stockings begin with a decorative dewdrop cast-on and a small geometric lace cuff that includes a strand of elastic thread (to help keep the stockings in place) and is bordered with eyelets. Two beautiful and somewhat geometric lace patterns are combined for the main part of the leg, with the larger pattern continuing along the top of the foot. Decreases between the patterns shape the leg “invisibly.” The vintage look of these knee-high stockings will add romantic flavor to any outfit.

Socks shown measure 8 1/4” (21 cm) foot circumference
