GET FELTED: Sharon's Girls in clogs

Sharon says, "Happy feet, happy girls."

I say, "Adorable clogs, adorable kids!"

Pretty girls, pretty clogs! I'd love to try that patttern.

Thanks everyone! The pattern is Children's Felt Clogs by Fiber Trends. They make an optional suede sole you can sew on, but Emma and Kate enjoy 'skating' on the wood floor so much, I guess I'm not going to bother with it. I used Lamb's Pride Bulky, which gave these a really nice, sturdy weight. It was a very quick, easy knit.

Awesome! Our LYS just started carrying Lamb's Pride.....I'm going to have to check into this!

I don't know which is cuter- the clogs or the girls!

Sharon, it looks as if the sole is thicker than the upper--is that true? If so, that would be even better!

Jean - yes, the sole is double thick. You pick up stitches all along the edge of the sole on the clog, then knit a second sole and attach it with a three needle bind off. My six-year old Emma says it feels like she's walking on clouds!

Fiber Trends also has an adult version of this pattern.

Thank you so much, Sharon! I visited the Fiber Trends site, but they don't sell the patterns to individuals, it seems, so I emailed my LYS to see if they can get it for me. These are so dadgum cute! (Almost as cute as those precious girls!)
