Clapochet Ta Da !!!! ........ . A couple of years ago I knitted my first Clapotis. This is a wonderful pattern that you may or may not have heard of. For those of you who haven't you can find it on Knitty or Ravelry. You can knit it in any type of yarn & any weight ( I knitted mine in Lorna Laces Sport weight ). It was a labour of love & was so worth the time & energy as I still love it !!!! Just before Christmas I was nosing through crochet patterns for scarves & shawls on Ravelry and came across a crochet pattern for the famous Clapotis called Clapochet. Well I couldn't wait to start hooking & had the perfect yarn tucked away in my stash.

So I dashed upstairs and rummaged through my eleven boxes of stash yarn until I found it !!! Three wonderful, beautiful skeins of Dream in Color Classy, such amazing yarn, though rather pricy, that I had been saving for the perfect project !

I ended up using all three skeins as I wanted it wide and long and used a 5mm hook. I love, love, love it and have worn it most days since it came off my hook !

Bye for now ♥


PS. I have just noticed that I am wearing my Clapotis in the photo at the top of my blog under "ME" !!!!
