Knit a pair of stockings

 golden hands vintage knitted stockings

I love this photoshoot, the hopscotch, the typical London street on a spring day – and that's before you get to the airborne, shoeless gals in their mini pinnies and handknitted hosiery.

Next they're snapped looking pensive on a pair of gate posts: Golden hands vintage knitted stockings

This issue was part 44/Vol 3 from 1972 of Golden Hands, the Marshall Cavendish partworks that dedicated crafters of the '70s could buy every week for 22½p and collect in special ringbinders. The talented photographer was a Mr Clive Corless.

And here are the patterns for your daisy lace stockings and lace rib stockings... start knitting them now and you could be skipping down the street in them by autumn with a nice pair of loafers and a secret suspender belt.
