Boudica is a top-down sock with a lace design. The sock is named for the Celtic rebel queen Boudica, who fought the Romans around 60 AD.

The Roman contemporaries described her as tall, with reddish-brown hair flowing to beyond the waist. She was undoubtedly a strong and rare woman in a time dominated by men. The lace pattern of the Boudica sock celebrates her flowing hair and fierce will.

All the lace patterns are presented in charted as well as written form below. The pattern is identical on both socks.

Language: English and Danish

The sock was originally designed as the second sock of the MacKintosh Yarns Sock Club 2011.
