This is the fourth pattern in a series inspired by characters on the television show Bones. Daisy Wick has never ending optimism, coupled with never ending energy: a dangerous combination, needless to say. The bright, feminine pink is perfect for a girl like Daisy, who thought proving that she was a woman to avoid being attacked meant stripping down to her bra and underwear.
The simple lace and cable ribbing provides these socks with a fair amount of stretch. Worked toe up, these socks can easily be adjusted to become knee socks or to fit a larger foot. Shown in size small.
