Gentleman's shooting socks
My dad has requested some shooting socks.

Does anyone have a pattern or know where I can find a free one for gentleman's shooting socks? I've seen loads of links and references to Nancy Bush's book, but I'm not wanting to buy a whole book for one pattern.

What are shooting socks? Are they something other than socks for the feet?

They are long wool socks, usually ribbed that come up to just under the knee and have a fold over rib top. They were worn (and probably still are) by the 'gentry' in England when they were out shooting grouse or other game birds. They were worn with knickerbocker pants things that came to just below the knee and were finished with a buttoned knee band.(the knickerbockers that is, not the socks)

I would try searching for Kilt socks, they are knee-high and usually have a fold over top. I think I've seen some free ones on line, but they aren't as plentiful as regular socks.

That's quite similar to the description my dad gave me with his request. He said people wear them with long shorts. He said the socks are like what he used to wear with his Boy Scout uniform. I'm sure he wants to have the decorative flaps? on the side, too. I had orange flappy things with my Brownie Scout uniform back in the 80s.

I don't know if there is one here but there are so many, there's bound to be something close:

I also just did a Ravelry search for "kilt socks" and there are a bunch of patterns, some free.

Good luck!
