Triple Twist Stockings
These stockings are worked from the toe up using the Magic Loop technique and feature an afterthought heel with Triple Twist Lace panels up each side of the leg giving them a sexy edge. Calf shaping and a ribbed top ensure a close fit with no sagging and the pattern includes instructions for 2 sizes.
S / M to fit 19 cm (7 ½ in) foot circumference, 33cm (12 in) calf circumference and 24 cm (9 ½ in) foot length
M / L to fit 21 cm (8 ¼ in) foot circumference, 35.5 (14 in) calf circumference and 25 cm (9 ¾ in) foot length
Both versions measure 55 cm (21 ¾ in) from base of heel to top of rib, to adjust foot length see Pattern Notes

Pattern instructions are mainly written with a chart provided for the lace stitch.
You’ll also need knitting elastic for the rib at the top of the stockings to ensure a snug fit and to stop the stocking from slipping down when worn
