I figured it out! Yay! I'm basing the Landsknecht stockings I'm knitting on stocking of Kurfürsten August von Sachsen, with help from the pictures of Duke Barnim's stockings and the knit hose pattern published in 1655 (R. Rutt "A History Of Hand Knitting").

I figured out how to make the von Sachsen style clocks and heel. Unfortunately there are no pictures because the AHA! moment resulted ripping back to the beginning of the clock. The heel was fine, but because of the gussets I needed to fix one little detail with the clock. I'm hoping I'll conquer the puzzle of the gusset decreases and increases over the weekend too.
