Inspired by the story of Miss Havisham from Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations, these knee-high stockings look back over the history of a woman who, jilted at the alter in the bloom of her youth, clings to the memory of her wedding day and as she ages becomes frail, rigid and elegantly moth-eaten.
Stockings are knit in the round from picot-edged cuff to toe with a flap heel and round toe. A ribbon threaded through a round of eyelets just below the picot edge helps to keep the stockings from slipping. Instructions and charts are written for 2 circular needles but pattern may be worked on dpns or by Magic Loop.
Pattern available exclusively from The Sanguine Gryphon.
