Felted Clogs

Pre-felting:









Post-felting:









Pattern: Fiber Trends Felted Clogs
Wool: 100purewool merino, two strands held together

I used about 1.5 hanks of the main colour and almost an entire hank for the soles. This is a fun pattern to knit, and fast too. I knit each slipper in an evening.

The clogs looks very fine.

Lovely clogs. I've got this pattern but I haven't knitted any yet. Hope mine turn out as nice as yours :-)

That is the nicest pair of felt clogs I've seen yet! You did a great job.

Val said...

I'm planning on making more for Xmas presents. Thanks for your kind comments.

I like them! I saw some suede bottoms that you can sew onto the felted slippers. Let me know if you want it.

I've seen so many bloggers knitting clogs again lately, makes me want to start a pair! Yours turned out great.

They look great, Val! I think I need to get that pattern, christmas gifts is a great idea...

Cool! I'm working on that pattern too, but I'm not as fast as you. Hope mine turn out as well!

do you or did you apply anything to keep them from skidding?
did you make more for xmas? photos?

Val said...

I made two more pairs, one I gave to my mom for her birthday (she put craft paint on the bottoms of hers becuase they were too slippery), the other pair is on stand-by to be a Xmas present, but I don't know for whom just yet. I have photos saved *somewhere*....

I love my slippers especially on these cooler than normal early mornings in Mexico.

The wonderful shawl you knit for me has had many people asking where they could get one.

A special, many talented daughter is a gift!!
