Have you ever seen Knitty’s famous Clapotis pattern? If not, you’re missing out. It’s a lovely little number that can either be worn as a scarf or a shawl. It’s knit on the diagonal with variegated yarn, so that it stripes in the opposite direction as the texture. The Animator’s Wife has been longing for such a scarf, but lacking the skill to knit, has come up with a crochet version.
Our crochet Clapochet is also worked on the diagonal, with chain spaces peppered throughout to create a texture similar to the original Clapotis. If variegated yarn is used, it will stripe with the texture instead of against it, but the final result is just as versatile as the original in that it may be scrunched up and worn as a scarf or spread out and worn as a shawl. We hope you enjoy it!
