D’Artagnan is the protagonist of the novels “The Three Musketeers” by Alexandre Dumas père.
The character is initially a hotheaded poor young nobleman from Gascony wanting to joint the Musketeers in Paris. There he quickly becomes friends with the three musketeers Athos, Porthos and Aramis and has a series of adventures which put him at odds with Cardinal Richelieu.
In the end, Richelieu, then First Minister of France, is impressed by d’Artagnan, and makes him a Lieutenant of the Musketeers. This begins his long career of military service, as detailed in the sequels to Dumas’ famous novel.
The lines of cables above a textured background in the pattern of these socks fit D’Artagnan’s character perfectly: always straightforward even when faced with a rough patch in life.
The patterns of my musketeer socks are just low-key enough to be wearable for all the men in your life,
and just interesting enough to save the knitter from being bored to tears while making them.
