Victorian Knitted Stocking Tops - The Sequel

From the 1887 edition of The Belding Self-Instructor in Silk Knitting, Crocheting and Embroidery.  You can find the entire book at the Antique Pattern Library if you're so motivated.

Enjoy!

You should try the stripe and bar pattern first!

A classic! I'm going to try a lot of these for wristers or mitts first. Stockings for my short, fat legs require more math ;-)

Thanks so much for these!

And do get the software--you can chart all these patterns :)

Believe me, it was just this sort of thing I had in mind when I saw that software!

And I'm glad to post these for people to enjoy!

So what have you made???

I'm working on some wristers and mitts using some of these designs. When I'm through experimenting I'll post what I've made.
