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 includes a digital copy of the pattern.
