I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

Tauron Felted Clogs in the works

The pattern is Felted Clogs by Bev Galeskas and it is a very easy pattern. I used the Baby Alpaca Wia Twist for the green , but I think I will have to go with a darning needle and put an extra thread in some areas that look week or empty. The sole is going to be fine. I used some Cascade Eco wool with some Paton's Classic and some mohair in there as well.
Here is the top, the bottom of the clog gets a double sole then you make like a bumper around , so the end product will be a very cool looking clog. I am actually thinking of using some mohair that I have in green and make some stripes and just go wild , lol!
At the toe Area some more material is needed. I did not realized until the end that the green yarn is DK instead of worsted and it is a bit thin, but with the addition of the other yarn it will work fantastic. l I won't know what to use to make it felt better until Iam done with the second clog, I won't know what I am actually going to do with this pattern to make it more me.
This is it for this moment, there is more to be done and this is a very addictive project. As you can see this clogs are huge before they get felted, thanks for stopping by!
