Lizzie's Walking Stockings

These socks are inspired by Elizabeth Bennet's walking: she walks to Netherfield to visit her ailing sister, takes a turn around the drawing room at Netherfield with Caroline Bingley, and as she walks the grounds near the parsonage, unexpectedly encounters Mr. Darcy. Lizzie's Walking Stockings come almost to the knee and are topped with a lace pattern named “Leaf Pattern, Very Pretty” from The Lady's Assistant by Mrs. Gaugain, published in 1840 (just outside the true Regency era, but the stitch pattern was likely in use before the book was published). The lace pattern creates a frilly top to the socks that could be seen—but heavens, certainly not shown—above the top of a boot.
