Fishnet stockings

I would like to try and knit a pair, but have no idea what kind of yarn to use. Wool, even very fine, seems kind of itchy… Any ideas? This is the pattern that I am thinking about doing:

Lolita legs

Thanks in advance!

Why not use the yarn suggested in the pattern?

Wow! Those look sooo cool!

those ARE cool. but i’d prefer it without the gaps at the back of the legs with the lacing.

Those are gorgeous aren’t they? I like the gap at the back… makes them awfully sexy. If you rise to this challenge (which it looks like to me a BIG ONE) just be sure to use really soft yarn or they’ll hurt!

i think i would just use sock yarn :shrug:
