Clapotis


Clapotis
by Kate Gilbert
Free Pattern from Knitty, Fall 2004
String Theory Hand Dyed Merino DK (560 yards)
Color - Fusion
US size 6 straight needles

I love everything about Clapotis, and I'm not the only one. There are over 10,000 projects on Ravelry. Clearly this is a favorite of many knitters. I used a DK weight yarn, so I adjusted the needle size from an 8 down to a 6. The yarn I used is so pretty. I had so much trouble getting a photo that did it justice.
It gets a lot of wear.
