I haven’t seen my first boyfriend in almost two decades but I still listen to The Eels, a band I ‘caught’ from him. This pattern is named for their Daisies of the Galaxy album, as both the socks and the album are for when you need something a little different but very easy going.
This pattern ships for free in the UK and includes a digital copy of the pattern.
The pattern includes both charts and written instructions for the lace panel in the socks. There is both a left and right version of the sock.
