I've just come back to knitting after a 20 year break. Decided to try to FT felted clog pattern, as I used to have a (shop-bought) pair of these that were great. However, the pattern is getting the better of me, and it's my first time on circular needles too. After several ripping back sessions, I decided to look for some help here.
I think I'm going wrong on the w&t. I get the shape, but my work ends up holey and I'm not getting the right number of stitches. The instructions for the w&t looked straightforward, and I followed them to a T. Then I looked at the instruction video on this site, which showed turning the work before wrapping the stitch. I also didn't get from the pattern about putting the needle through the wrap plus the stitch, which I guess makes a big difference. Can anyone explain this technique to me in simple terms?
I'm also having a hard time counting my stitches when I lose track of where I am. I guess I can't recognize the "landmarks" in this new pattern. I've just come from knitting socks on size 2 dpns, which were a breeze compared with this. However, I really, really want to do these clogs. Can someone point me in the right direction? Since this thread is so big, my questions may have been answered already, but I don't want to spend hours sitting here reading all the posts. I'd rather be knitting!
BTW, I'm working them in Cascade 220.
