Meaning cosy in Scottish Gaelic, Tìorail features all my favourite cosy knitting features! A wide garter stitch panel is bracketed by stocking stitch columns, slipped stitch cables and broken rib running up the centre of the leg. Tìorail is knit from the toe up with a gusset and heel flap – with four widths and flexible length fitting, these are a great pattern for everyone!

The pattern is fully written and the lace is also charted so whichever way you like to read your patterns, you’re covered! The pattern has been tech edited and test knitted. There’s a screenshot of the pattern, and a list of the stitches used at the bottom of the photos. The pattern includes photo tutorials for German Short Rows and working cables without a cable needle. You will also need to know how to do Judy’s Magic Cast-On and a stretchy bind off like Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind-Off.
