61  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / wanna felt more slippers! on: December 11, 2003 04:23:22 PM
i just finished the fuzzyfeet felted slippers pattern at www.knitty.com, was easier than i thought it would be, though they did turn out a little big.  a very satisfying project, perfect for this wintery week... i wanna felt some more!

has anybody done felted clogs or slippers that they were happy with?  could you share the pattern with soon-to-be-addicted-to-felting knitters?

thanks guys!

to figure out how many stitches to cast on, why don't you cast on 10 and knit for a couple of inches?  then measure it and see how many inches of scarf 10 stitches will make.  then do the (easy) math to figure out how many you should cast on total, unravel those practice stitches, and start casting on.

i almost always do a test like that before i start the real project, just to see if i'm using the size of needle that i really want to be using.  you never know.

if you're thinking about making a super long scarf, you might have trouble making it all fit on the needles.  one answer would be to make it on circular needles, but just don't join it into a circle.  know what i mean?

i just finished my first felted project -- slippers.  i made the mistake of not felting a swatch first, though, to see how my yarn would shrink up, and because of that they turned out huge!  so i've gotta try again.  but it was really satisfyingly easy and fast -- you get to knit on big needles, and your mistakes tend to disappear.  so no worries for beginners.  just knit and test felt a 4 inch square to be safe!!

the slippers were the felted fuzzyfeet pattern at www.knitty.com

i bought my sis a denim-type jacket (it was a thinner material though) at a thrift store, and embroidered her nickname cowboy-script style across the back, with some flowers.  best christmas present ever!
