The Beloved Clapotis

For today's Monday customer project feature, Angela sent photos of her Clapotis shawl. What is it about that Clapotis pattern that seems to draw everyone in? It is a lovely pattern and every version has its own unique look depending on the yarn, the color selection, and the hand of the knitter. I think perhaps I'm the only one who hasn't knit my own Clapotis yet. Hmmm .... maybe I'll rectify that before too long.

For Angela's version of the Clapotis, she used FF Mohair/Wool DK Yarn in the "In the Pink" colorway.



Here's another photo to give you a better view of the detail.



Didn't Angela do a lovely job? If you'd like to learn more about Angela's knitting endeavors, take a side trip over to her blog.

Keep those project photos coming! Even if you've sent in photos before, I'd love to see more.

Wishing everyone a wonderful start to another week!

You're not the only one. I am -- and am likely to remain -- Clapotis-free.

Oh, that is lovely! :) I think I need to make a Clapotis myself, as a sort of newbie knitter rite-of-passage.

Oh that is REALLY pretty. I wish I could bring myself to knit one. I mean, even if I don't want it, I have tons of people I could gift it to ......I agree with Katinka, it is a rite- of- passage.

Haven't knit one either, so you are not alone.

It is quite lovely.
