Now that many of you clog boyz are already felting your creations, I've finally found out the sizes I need to make and bought enough yarn to make two pairs. I came home from work this afternoon and got started on the first inner sole, which I'm doing in one strand of blue and one of light grey (hoping for a blue jeans effect).
I thought I'd pass along something that I found helpful when I made these clogs before. First, I went through the entire pattern and underlined every occurrence of the center stitch, which is easy to recognize because it mostly occurs between two increases or decreases. Then I marked the center stitch on my needles with a brightly-colored scrap of yarn so that while I was working I could easily verify that that stitch corresponded to the marked center stitch on the pattern. I found it reassuring to have a landmark while repeatedly turning my work, rather than finding out further down the line that I'd miscounted and having to rip out several rows.
