Finished Knit: Clapotis for Amama
January 14, 2008
Everyone has made a Clapotis. I made one for my grandmother for Christmas, picking this shade of pink/blue variegated yarn to compliment her lovely silver hair. The yarn was on super sale at Knit Picks, has such a gorgeous color, and is a nice soft merino wool. The drape the yarn gives as a finished knit is perfect. At first a daunting pattern, this knit is easy as pie with the spreadsheet that counts stitches and rows found here.
Even though the shawl seemed to take forever, it was enjoyable to knit. I originally bought another set of yarn to knit this for myself, but I’m not sure I’m interested in it anymore. Of course, now my mother would like one…so how can I say no to knitting it again?
