From the book:
“These socks were inspired by the wallpaper in the dining room of Longbourn, The Bennets’ house, in the BBC production of Pride and Prejudice. This tessellated pattern works best when there is a value contrast between the solid and multicolored yarns. The lazy daisy embroidery on the cuff not only adds a feminine touch but also helps tack down long floats inside the sock.”
