The stockings to be worn with this elegant gown are knitted two at a time from the toe up using the magic- loop method. Small stockings are a perfect project on which to learn the two-at-a-time technique. The stockings are shaped in the leg to fit an infant. Broken-rib trim incorporated at the top of the leg coordinates stockings and gown. (Interweave)
