I promised that I would upload this pattern, so here it is. The instructions are general, as I know most of you knit socks already. This pattern includes the following techniques – Fair Isle, tubular cast on, double knit short row heel and toe, and Kitchener closure. I have also given instructions on how to prepare for the inserting elastic in the rib casings. If you have forgotten what they look like, below is a photo.
I have altered the pattern a bit, realigning the roses and adding rose buds at the top. The pdf’s below are available for you to upload.
You might want to check out my post on “Oops Becomes a Blessing.” This post gives you more info on the elastic insertion. I am still finding the after several washing, the stockings stay up all day. The combo of using a larger needle for the calf area, combined with the 1/4 inch elastic rounds enclosed in the ribbing works like magic.
I you have any questions, you know where to reach me.
Happy knitting- KT
