Two patterns in one, these thigh-highs and kneesocks are inspired by the stockings of cabaret dancers in the Paris of the Belle Époque. They’re topped with an eyelet lace band, through which you can thread a pretty ribbon or an elastic cord. Suggested materials include 1/super fine yarn; 2 US size 0 (2mm) circular needles or 1 long circular needle. Fits sizes small (6 3/4") and medium (7 3/4") foot circumference (unstretched).
