One of the most popular patterns on Ravelry is the Clapotis. A Clapotis is a rectangular shawl with rows of dropped stitches for a lacy look. It’s simple but interesting, once you get the pattern established. It can be worked in any weight of yarn, with bigger or smaller needles, pretty much any way you like it. With this kind of flexibility I’m not surprised it’s been knit up more than 17,000 times! It’s time to pick up some yarn and needles and cast on one of your very own. Not only is it a great knit but there is also a party to go along with it. From 7-9 Friday night, May 6th we will be having a Clapo-tea party! Wear your beautiful creation to knit night and sip some tea at the Clapo-tea.
Our dear muse KT knit up the most beautiful Clapotis in Handmaiden Mini Maiden so I had to scoop some up for one of my own. I know I know, I can’t help wanting to knit up everything she knits. It’s a sickness. I’m knitting it up in Mini Maiden on 5mm needles. Kynna is knitting hers up in Misti Alpaca’s Handpaint Sock in a pretty rainbow colourway. So, pick up some yarn, some needles, and the free Clapotis pattern here and get ready for a party!
