Pattern: Fiber Trends AC-33x Felt Clogs
Yarn: Patons Classic Wool Merino (100% Wool) 2 skeins Paprika and 2 skeins Black (both with leftovers)
I really enjoyed this project! The clogs work up quickly. I was intimated by the pattern but it was not difficult if I took it row by row. I did make some errors. When I changed colors, I misunderstood and picked up a stitch from the previous color(row) on one slipper. When it came to W&T (wrap and turns) I had no problems but I didn't know you should knit the stitch and wrap together on the next row. Maybe it doesn't matter when you felt as I have no holey areas on my clogs. Now here is the big boo boo...
My prefelted clogs went from this:
to a post felt clog that looks like this:
That's right, they are too small. I left them in the wash to rinse some more of the soap out while my Sophie bag was finishing up its felt. The water was not very hot and I was sure they wouldn't shrink anymore....wrongo! I've stretched them quite a bit and I'm sure they'll fit someone when they dry.
On a positive note, I love the Halloweenish colors and I have enough paprika left over to make a small felted pumpkin for the holidays.
