The Scent of Lavender pattern by Stephanie van der Linden
A variety of lace patterns originated in Spain, but lace knitted stockings came into their own in France. These created quite a sensation, especially in England, where Henry VIII owned many pairs of French-made lace stockings.
From the designer: I am no longer able to provide direct support for this free pattern. However, there are many, many projects with excellent notes by people who have knitted this pattern much more recently than I have, and it is extremely likely that if you search project notes and forum comments for this pattern, someone has already answered your question.
