Ohhhhh malabrigo clogs would be very nice! It's still more worsted than bulky, so still double strand it. And if you don't want dirty malabrigo, maybe use WOTA or Cascade on the soles


Pixy and Cook, you can do it! And if you get stuck, we're here for you!

I have typed up the pattern for a women's size medium ... easier to read and mark, without all the other sizes mixed in. I will be happy to share. You would have to have purchased the pattern to use it because it is just row by row without all the instructions included ... larger font, in Word. It is much easier to follow . PM your email and I will be glad to send it! I have made two pair from my typed sheed, so it has been "proffed" ! I am working on the Mens Med ...

Thanks Andrea.. I'll have to see if I have enough for a sole or I might just have to walk on my malabrigo clogs.. I'm really thinking I should do this with the velvet grape and then I'll have oceanos for a scarf..

Debbie thats a great idea!! I had made an extra copy of my patterns and marked what I needed this way I'll be ready to start but that would be easier...

dustinac ... I scanned my pattern to a word readable document . I changed it from 2 colums to one and went through and corrected the things that didn't "translate" like ! for 1 ... there were only a few. After that, I went through and deleted the sizes that did not belong to the size I needed. I also deleted rows and instructions that I did not need and when it said "repeat row bla bla" I copied and pasted that row.... my pretty pink post it's can just go down line by line without having to re-find my place .. not to mention the LARGER SIZE font and white paper . The first time I had to refer to some of the insturctions on the original pattern but once I could "see" the knitting , my "cheat sheet" makes easy.

If anyone is still "scared" ... this pattern is very easy to follow, uses "normal" stitches and gives you a row count very often... if you are off by one stitch you can m1 or k2tog and it won't mess your clog up ... I um... did that a couple of times ! AND ... it is SO amazing how it turns out knitted ... and even more magic when you felt it. I am in awe of the pattern author !!!!

I guess I should get the camera out and take pix ... so y'all will know I really made them

Perhaps stating the obvious...
Hey! Just wanted to toss in a little advice. I wanted to remind all the clog newbies that you MUST use 100% wool or they won't work! It would be awful if someone worked really hard to make these and used acrylic!

I'm making a pair for my girlfriend's birthday. Since her birthday was yesterday I was trying to figure out how I couldmake these go faster.

The GREATEST thing I''ve discovered is that I didn't have to go through with a spare needle and pick up stitches on the inside of the cuff and do a 3NBO. Instead, for every stitch, I just lifted the bottom loop from the inside of the cuff up onto the LH needle, and knit it together with the stitch already there, and THEN bound off. It's easier to work than a 3NBO (for me), AND really fast.

Im not sure if this will work for the second sole, but I'm going to try it anyway.

So you did the bind off as you went? Did I read that right? That would be a hell of a lot easier.

Yep, I did a BO as I went along. It WAS much easier. I think it took me less than 10 minutes for the entire cuff, from the beginning of the round to the bind off.
