My Alternative Yarn Suggestions & Amounts: The Croft Shetland Tweed Aran Two 100g hanks for shade A and one 100g hank for shade B, or Kilcarra Tweed Four 50g balls for shade A and two 50g balls for shade B.
Needles: Set of four double pointed 4.5mm knitting needles.
Gauge (tension): 19 stitches and 26 rows to 10cm/4ins square over stocking stitch using 4.5mm needles.
Size: The pattern is written for UK size 4-6 but will fit all foot lengths when knitted to the desired length as indicated in the pattern.
My design ideas and advice: Someone came into my shop and asked if I did long socks. I didn’t at the time but I do now! Great to wear with wellies or just for lounging in. I will be wearing them in the winter months with my pyjamas!
