Prepare for a ball or warm up on a cold evening with these beautiful over-the-knee stockings. Clocks of twisted-knit tulips run up both sides of each sock.

• For a wider calf, cast on more stitches (eight more stitches for each inch), then decrease these stitches when shaping the lower calf, working the decrease rows closer together if needed so that the decrease will be complete at the narrow part of calf and before chart ends. When placing chart, work half of the additional stitches before placing the chart and the other half after placing the chart.
