“Two delightful twilight walks … where the trees were the oldest and the grass was the longest and wettest, had—assisted by the still greater imprudence of sitting in her wet
shoes and stockings—given Marianne a cold so violent, as, though for a day or two trifled with or denied, would force
itself by increasing ailments, on the concern of everybody, and the notice of herself.”

Reflecting contemporary stocking designs in Regency England the Marianne Dashwood Stockings feature lace clocks, an encased ribbon garter, and a false seam.

The smaller needle size is for the inner cuff. Main sock is knitted on 2.25mm needles.
