Tyrol Socks

THE YARN

Bergere de France - Cablenyl - Colour: Cannelle

THE NEEDLE

KnitPicks 2.25mm - one circular needle.

TENSION (GAUGE)

38 / 50 10 cm ( 9.5 / 12.5 pi)

THE PATTERN

My own toe up twisted stitch design.

THE HEEL

My own Andersson Heel Mach 2.

I knitted both at same time. Yarn came in 50gm balls and much to my surprise both were the same length!
