FO: Lots of Clogs
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! 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.
