Clapotis modified

Well, I may be stalled on two Clapotis, but I’ve completed one! Well, a Clapotis modification at least. It does tie around my neck, and measures 20″ x 24″. Presenting, the Clapotis Neckerchief:


2 skeins Debbie Bliss Pure Silk

Size 7 U.S. needles

17 stitch markers

tapestry needle


Follow Knitty’s Clapotis pattern until you have completed enough increase sections to have 18 sections on your needles.

On the next right side row, K to one stitch before first marker, K1tbl, PM, and complete the following after every marker until the last: drop the first stitch after the marker, let it drop a few rows, and pick up the stitch below as in the original pattern, knitting this stitch and the following through the back loop, K3, k1tbl, PM

At the last marker: PM, K1, k1tbl, K to end

For the next two rows continue the appropriate line in the Clapotis increase section (i.e. P1, K3, ktbl (K, Ktbl, K3, Ktbl, PM) , repeat () to last marker, K1tbl, K to end; K1, P to end)

For the next row, complete the row in K1, P1 rib.

Cast off in K1, P1 rib.

Finish any stitch dropping that wasn’t completed during the pattern, weave in ends, and block as desired.

    I like it! For the girl who doesn’t always need a full-sized Clapotis… or for the girl who has a skein or so of the amazing luxury yarn left over from making somebody else’s Clap.
