Over Thanksgiving weekend I set out to knit three pairs of Fiber Trends Felted Clogs… I managed to finish two out of three. Now that one of the two gifting pairs has been gifted, I can finally talk about them here.
Both pairs were made out of Cascade 220 (blue) and Patons Merino Wool using size 13 needles. The first pair was knit in 6 hours on Thanksgiving. The second took a little bit longer as I didn’t have as much time to sit and knit them straight through.
Pair 1 has not been given yet. It is for a birthday in January. Pair two was gifted as a semi-late Christmas present tonight.
Unfortunately the third pair remains un-knit. I got slightly distracted and will come back to them after the new year. No worries though, they are going to be knit to replace my current pair I keep at work. They’ve seen better days.
I will stand by the fact that the Fiber Trends Felted Clogs is my favorite knitting pattern ever written. I’ve knit a number of pairs over the last 4 years and would recommend them to anyone looking for a slipper pattern. They aren’t too hard of a knit and can be knit in a weekend if you have the time. I think they make for great gifts and are always needed (especially in this cold midwest weather) throughout the winter months.
