I bought these socks in the "Flower argyle" (fargyle) design because I was looking for fun crew socks my daughters and I could share (size 9, 10, and 11 shoes), and these were perfect. They're even cuter than the product picture can show; inside each argyle square is a daisy-type flower of complementary colors. They're a sturdy, basic cotton blend, and the colors are still vibrant after multiple washes. We also haven't had any problems with the seams tearing or being too scratchy. (One of my girls has sensory issues and usually can't stand socks with toe-seams; these are "cute" enough that she hasn't had any complaints.) The pattern is only on the outside of the sock; if you put them on inside-out you can see the outline. The only minor drawback I've encountered is that they are a stretchy-but-snug fit, so sometimes they feel a little tight around the ankles after a long day on my feet (I'm the size 10), so you might not want to wear them on a day when you know you're going to have swollen ankles.
