Net Edge on a Baby Sock

I found the instructions for this net edge in two different magazines:
  1. Peterson's Magazine (Vol. 39-40), published in 1861
    1. Baby's Knitted Shoe and Sock [with net trim] (page 77) 
  2. Godey's Lady's Book (Vol. 78-79), published in 1869
    1. Baby's Boot (knitting) [net edging on cuff] (page 255)
In the magazines the first row of netting was made into the last row of knitting.  I just made a couple rows of plain netting.

It's a simple edge and very easy, which is a change from the last two weeks. I'm beginning to like it more than I did at first.
