I first stumbled across this pattern years and years ago. Well, actually I stumbled upon the knit original, the Clapotis , in about 2004 via Knitty, and then subsequently found Clapochet, the crochet (and IMHO, easier) version. So I’ve wanted to make one of these for AGES!!!
I finally got started earlier this year by trying out the beginning stitches on some spare yarn I had lying around.
|My first efforts|
|Sean Sheep Rockband wool Pink and blue verigated|
|Humble beginnings (the green thing in the background
is my ‘green’ shopping bag I stored the Clapochet in)
|Gotta keep going! Nearly finished….|
And this is where I stalled. I got to the point where I needed to ‘squaring off’ the end of the scarf again and it stayed that way for weeks and weeks. Then finally this weekend I resolved that I needed to finish a project. So I couldn’t fall asleep on Friday night so while I was watching very bad late night television I finished this project off. Yay!
|All Done!||Close up of the striping.|
I’ve Ravelled this lovely here. I’m already thinking about making another, but I’ll probably take ages to get around to it.
Until next time, I hope you finish something and feel a great sense of achievement.
