AND
One 50g ball of Knoll Mohair Tweed.

Yarn Used In Design: Knoll Mohair Tweed (70% merino/30% mohair, 110m per 50g).
I used shade 2624 Tupilo for shade A and shade 2611 Blueberry for shade B.

Metres/Yardage for shade A: 220m/240yds.
Metres/Yardage for shade B: approx. 68m/74yds.

Four double pointed 3.75mm knitting needles.

Tension: 20 stitches and 30 rows to 10cm square over stocking stitch when using 3.75mm needles.

Measurements: to fit UK size 5 (or desired foot length as highlighted in the pattern.  If you are knitting the foot length longer than size 6 then you will need a 3rd ball of shade A).

Skill level: ♦ ♦ ♦  

My design ideas and advice: I named this pattern Tra because it is the Irish for beach and the ridges on the sock remind me of the ridges the sea makes on the beach as it laps the shore. The Mohair Tweed is a gorgeous yarn to knit with, it has colours that twinkle at you as you knit each stitch.
