Bon Vivant Stockings Crochet Pattern
This product will be accessible from My Downloadable Products located in My Account after purchase.
Brenda K. B. Anderson's pineapple motif ingeniously decorates the back of these lacy stockings to create the shaping needed for the calf. Rows of slip stitch worked through the back loops alternate with rows of double crochet to allow for an elastic, comfortable fit. The heel and toe are worked last, making it easy to replace these areas after they wear out.Finished Size: Directions are given for size Small (S). Changes for Medium (M) and Large (L) are in parentheses. Length of stockings can easily be changed and is noted in pattern. Stockings measure 9½" (10¼, 11)" (24 [26, 28] cm) around calf; 6¾ [7½. 8¼)" (17 [19, 21] cm) around foot.
