Challenging Pair of Knee Highs

There are times that I take on a challenge in knitting custom. This pair was more than I had bargained for and a challenge it was to figure out how to reduce the circumference of the leg to the smaller ankles without upsetting the Staggered Cable pattern. The customer was very precise on her measurements with a very wide calf to a more narrow ankle. I had taken out the stitches at least 3 times to make sure of the fit. A 4" cuff and then a 16" leg length was a lot for me to handle. I had to order more yarn as I didn't figure in the 18" circumference of the calf! But as much  as a challenge they were, I was glad I took on the task. Very educational and challenging!
