They look great! I can't wait to see them felted!

(I love the clown-shoe look of unfelted clogs...it makes me giggle every time I see it!)

I'm sure this has been posted at some point on one of the mondo-clog-threads, but I just discovered something. I accidentally made my last pair of clogs in size large instead of medium. I felted them to fit, and this made a much sturdier fabric. I think I like this mistake.

I took my unfelted clogs to school to show the other teachers who have just started knitting. They think felted clogs would be a great science fair project!

OH, that's a great idea.

I'll save that one for my son's first science fair project or my daughters. They will both have a project to do next year. Can they both do the same project at the same time???? It sure would be easier on Mom.....

This has probably been asked a million times... sorry for repeating... but what the are the "back loops"??

I did something last night that might or might not have been right (thank God it's going to be felted...) - the back loop thing and the bind off thing... but I have no idea if it was really right. What exactly are the back loops? And you just thread them onto the second circular, right, it's not like picking up stitches from the working yarn and knitting with that, right...?

My progress so far...

I think the back loops are the backs of the color change when switching from sole knitting to the instep.

Btw, I believe there was some comments much, much earlier in this thread about different pattern numbers (?) for the clogs. AC33 and AC33x? I recently was in a LYS that had the older pattern! If I had to choose between the two (and yes, you DO get the same result), I would take the AC33, as it seems to be clearer (both literally and figuratively). Printed on white paper, too!

The pattern was at The Mannings when I visited there this past Friday. I know they do some small amount of mail order, so if anyone is interested, I guess you should specify you want AC33.

I'm doing single-color clogs, so I'm still confused...

I just bought it
I just ordered the Clogs pattern. After hearing and reading so much about them I decided to give them a try.

Can anyone tell me how much yarn I will need to make a women's size 11?? I'd like to get my yarn while I'm waiting for the pattern to arrive in the mail. Thanks for any help.

I just read the above post about trying to get the AC33 pattern and NOT the AC33x. Well the one I bought is the x. Can anyone explain what the difference is in the two as far as the directions go??

IMO, the directions in the older pattern are more explicit. I think the older one had 4 pages of directions as opposed to the newer one with 2 pages on dark paper plus a small insert detailing bumpers and how to add on the second sole.

Whichever, you'll still wind up with the same finished product.

How much do you need to make a women's small? I used patons for my last pair of mens'. I am placing a big knitpick's order today.
