in Miranda Pattern
Weldon's, Volume 19, Fifty-ninth Series, 1904, page 7
Original specified Ardern's No 22 Crochet Cotton; four steel #17 (U.S. 00000; 1 mm) needles.
Even though this sock was designed for a child of two to three years old, I loved the pattern and thought it would translate well into an adult's sock. I also thought size 0 (2 mm) needles sounded much better than size 00000 (1 mm)! The design down the leg is made up of squares of openwork patterns. They decrease down the back of the leg for a "shapely" fit and decorate the top of the foot. This sock has a French Heel and a Flat Toe.
Finished Size 77(19 cm) foot circumference, 87>" (21.5 cm) long from cast-on edge to top of heel flap, and 972" (24 cm) long from back of heel to tip of toe. To fit women's U.S. shoe sizes 8 to 9.
