These pretty Victorian-inspired stockings are a lovely way to show off a well-turned ankle. They feature a fitted calf and are worked from the toe up for easy try-ons. Though the stockings are thigh high, (24" from floor to the Zig-Zag Lace), the knitter can stop anywhere along the way, add the ribbing, and be done.
