Pattern Details

In The Netherlands at Christmas, children leave a shoe out by the fireplace or sometimes a windowsill. They also believe that if they leave some hay and carrots in their shoes for Sinterklass’s horse, they will be left some sweets or small presents. I am not Dutch, but this seems like such a lovely tradition that I thought I would make some very tiny elf clogs containing sweets or nuts to hang on the Christmas tree. This is a very an easy knit, all in garter stitch, and with one small seam to sew. A pair of clogs only takes about 6g of wool, so it is a great way to use up left over oddments. You can go to town decorating these little shoes, and I would love you to link your projects, so I can see what you have done. Please see my blog for a few ideas

Recommended with this pattern

The inspiration for my knitting patterns often comes from nature. I love little knitting projects, and try my hardest to be realistic with my plant and animal designs. Often my projects start from something very personal: my own house or my husband's first car. Then I develop them into something that I think will be appealing. I live on the outskirts of London, and work part-time at a local school. My own children are always doing something creative. At school I love the days when we get really messy.
