When I first made a pair of these clogs for my husband last year I hated the pattern and swore I would never use it again. Part of the problem is that I donít like 16Ē cables, especially with size 13 needles. So when I decided to make some clogs for my sons I experimented with different techniques and settled on knitting these flat and seaming up the back. I also eliminated the 3-needle bind-off at the cuff and the outer sole. Instead, I picked up each stitch individually as I worked it and dispensed with the extra cable needle. This worked out so well I made a pair for myself as well. Pattern: Fiber Trends Felted Clogs Yarn: Cascade 220

They all look great. I have had that pattern for a long time, but have yet to make them.

Those look wonderful! :yay: I like your new technique, so I copied and pasted it for future use. I'm just now getting back to knitting a little at a time. I have 3 pairs of clogs I was to make for Christmas. Hope to get going on those soon.

i have had this pattern for a long while, and even started it, but got bogged down and forgot which size i was making, and there are so many little details for which size, got reallly confused, unravelled the whole thing and put the yarn away. yours look so good, tho, Slim, may get motivated to try again--plus am more experienced in pattern reading now. linknit41

I know what you mean about reading the pattern! This time I made a copy of the pattern and circled the numbers for the size I was making in red, then put it on my chart keeper and slid the magnetic strip down the page as I worked. It was much easier! Here are some pics:

You inspire me!

They look great. I hope the pair I am finishing up looks as good. I didn't mind the triple needle bind off until I did it on the double sole. I think I'll try doing a leather bottom on my next pair and eliminate the double sole. I like your choice of colors, makes me want to hurry and get mine done so I can wear them.

BEAUTIFUL!! I love the colors and the work looks perfect. Very good idea to change the pattern to suit your preferred way of working. A little seam in the back wouldn't be hard to do. I've never made any clogs so the other tip goes over my head, but I'm sure it is good. :-) The dark blue and gray ones are my favorite.
