A Clapotis for Christmas

Yarn: Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Worsted, Black Purl, 2 skeins
Pattern: Clapotis (scarf size)
Needles: US #7
Thoughts: This is my fourth Clapotis, and it will be gifted to my sister. I like the Black Purl colorway a lot, and originally I was going to knit another scarf-sized Clapotis for myself in the same colorway. However, I think I am finally starting to get tired of the pattern…so perhaps mine will have to wait until next year.

    That is gorgeous – I love the colorway you used!

    That was the colorway for my first pair of socks! I still love it. It looks very nice in the clappy. If you see any nice non wool/non alpaca yarns that the clappy would look good in, let me know. I want one, but I can’t have the animal fur on my neck.

    I have started that scarf/shawl aabout a gazillion times but have yet to finish one. Your’s looks fantastic, nice job!

    I love the combination of the colorway and the Clapotis pattern, Caitlyn. Very pretty!

    UGH!! I can’t believe what you started…i found your website through Jaden’s and saw this beautiful scarf!! You re-inspired me to learn how to knit (i’d given it up many times to return to the easy art of crocheting). I just “invested” $150 in yarn, needles, & patterns!! I think you’ve created a monster!!!
