The pattern is from the Bocksten mans hoses. The heel, if you follow the pattern loyally, as was done here, gets a a very sharp, 90 degree corner, that gives the wearer some trouble when wearing it, it always crumbles up under the heel. maybe thats why this hose got torn under the foot, as they normally don't.
Ill keep an eye on those hose, see how they'll look in October.
