Clapotis




Pattern Notes
Clapotis from Knitty

It seems like everyone in the online knitting community has made this wrap and now I can see why! It is an easily memorized knit, but is also a slower knit than I expected.

Yarn: Autumn House Rayon Yarn bought at Rhinebeck 2006
Color: 501 blues and white
Needles: US 6 (my ebony needles!)

I used size 6 needles because this yarn seemed to work well on them. The 8's just seemed too big. As a result, I used only 2 skeins (of the 4 I had) of this yarn, for a total of 460 yards. I think it is smaller than the one in the pattern. I love it though. It is so soft, shiny, and drapy, and very delicate. I didn't modify the pattern at all.

Your clapotis came out so pretty! Love the colors. Seeing yours makes me want to finally make one (it's not like a baby blanket, is it? LOL).
