This pattern is Little Turtle Knits’ June Sock Club Design.

Pemberley, as most of you probably know, is the English country estate of a certain Mr. Darcy. Didn’t we all have secret dreams of finding our own Mr. Darcy? My own dear hubby is quite a bit like ol’ Darcy - biting observation and quiet admiration and loyalty, minus the grand estate (darn it!)

These silk stockings are what I imagine Elizabeth Bennett might have worn as the Mistress of Pemberley. They are elegant, luxurious and out-of-the-ordinary without being over-the-top. A blend of merino with the silk lends a more practical warmth to these beauties, as well. Of course, if you’re a modern woman who isn’t living in a drafty estate house and don’t require the warmth of knee stockings, there’s the (quicker to knit!) crew length option.

Knit in the round from the toe up, these socks incorporate a traditional gusset with eye of partridge heel. The knee-length version features delicate shaping in the calf to ensure an excellent fit. Finishing details like coordinating ribbon ties and a sewn bind off make these exceptional socks truly a luxurious treat for your feet.
