Applause for Clapotis

Worn as a scarf, Clapotis is thick and warm.

Worn as a wrap, Clapotis is light and airy.

Love the yarn and the drop stitches.

Dresses up a t-shirt, fishing pants and purple Crocs nicely, don't you think?

Protected me from the mosquitoes when the sun went down.

From start to finish, Clapotis is a good knit. I give it a standing ovation!

  13. It looks so cozy, just the perfect thing when it's not exactly cold, but you need a little something extra.

  16. I had no desire to knit a Clapotis until I saw you model it as a wrap - Lovely! And much more usable for me than a scarf. Now I'm going to have to give it some thought!
