The influence of Brown’s Danish ancestry (her maternal grandmother emigrated to North America before World War II) is evident in these crisp socks, knit in Ancient Arts Fibre Crafts’ 3-Ply Sock/Fingering. Worked from ribbed cuff to grafted toe, they employ a floral colorwork pattern adapted from Swedish embroidery. Blue and white stripes decorate the heels; geometric patterns work their way across the soles.
