Madder Stockings

LaceKnits: Fresh Techniques for a Fine Tradition
Knitting
May 2012
Light Fingering / 3 ply ?
38 stitches and 50 rows = 4 inches in stockinette
US 1 - 2.25 mm
660 yards (604 m)
1/2 (93/4, 103/4)" (21.5 [25, 27.5] cm) calf circumference; 6 (63/4, 71/4)" (15 [17, 18.5] cm) foot circumference

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.
