Clapotis anyone ?
I'm starting to attack my Sheep & Wool stash - first up, SOLO from Brooks Farm Yarn, a lovely, soft singles yarn made of Fine Wool according to the label, perfect for a Clapotis.
Are last week's knitting buddies still interested in a knit-along ? We probably carry the distinction of being the last three human beings to knit this popular pattern. Makes me feel slightly outdated, sort of like a dinosaur.
I love the way the swatch for it turned out. This is going to be a fun knit !
The only thing I'm not crazy about are the little bumps on the side. They are made by the increases in the last stitch on each side. I tried reknitting these increases in different ways to achieve a prettier, smoother border, but couldn't really figure out another way. Any ideas, fellow knit-alongers ?
