I first saw a picture of knee stockings done on regular knitting needles and thought, huh I bet I can do that on a knitting loom.  So using Provo Crafts small circular loom I experimented and this is what I ended up with:

It was actually fairly simple.  I started at the cuff and knitted a flat panel all the way down to ALMOST the ankle and then began to knit in a circular pattern.  Then I ran orange ribbon from the bottom to the top and finished it off in a bow.  They are held up at the knee by the elastic I sewed in along the cuff.

I do intend to write a full fledged pattern after I work out a few small kinks and play with a few concepts I'm toying with.

those look cute they look almost like fishnets though
I wonder if you can make a tighter knit with the loom?

They are supposed to look like fishnets.

They're gorgeous. I particularly like the ribbons up the back (and the crafty way of taking pictures whilst wearing them!)

Hi. Those are really cute. How long did it take you to make those? Those would look cute with my daughter's Halloween costume. I hate to be a pest, but when will you be posting the pattern? Thanks.  Roll Eyes
