These stockings were inspired by the Ivory and Madder Bridal Veil, which showcased Shetland lace knitting at the first World’s Fair in 1851. The shawl’s edging is transformed into the cuff of these stockings, and the zigzag insertion travels down the front of the leg.

The sample shown was knitted in the colorway “Transnational Fury”. Socks shown measure 8-1/2” (21.5cm) leg circumference and fit a U.S. women’s shoe size 8.
