Worked from the toe up with a textured heel flap, these knee highs feature a tiny, twisted cable on the outside of each sock, while subtle calf shaping is worked across only the back half of stitches. Finished off with a delicate lace edging, Bonneterie are named after the French word for "hosiery". Step out in style! The 3-page PDF includes instructions for altering the length of the foot and leg to achieve a perfect fit, and also gives both written instructions and a chart for the lace edging.
