HAPPY 2014 I found this advertisement...."by a Lady" here is a possible way to figure out. The stocking knitter's manual. Edinurgh: Johnson & Hunter This work-table companion gives twenty sets of instructions for knitting plain stockings, from an infant's size the that of a full grown person: seven sets for stockings of a fancy pattern; and thirteen for knitting socks of various sizes. The appreviatons used appear to be those of Mrs. Gaugain, or of similar character. The Ladies' Treeasury, June 1867.
