Late to the Party

I’ve started a clapotis for myself this week. I’m only what, 2 or 3 years behind the trend on this one?

It is actually going to be a mini-clapotis, since I am using one skein of Cherry Tree Hill DK Merino in the Monet colorway which I received as a Christmas gift last year.

I originally wanted to do a simple fan and feather lace pattern to show of the colors in the yarn. I started at least 4 times using different numbers of stitches and different size needles but it just didn’t look like I imagined. I remember clapotis and how I wanted to try a small, scarf sized version and thought this yarn would be perfect for it.

Clapotis in progress

You can kind of see the twisted columns where stitches will be dropped later. I’ve having fun with this project so far, but I’m not much of a scarf knitter and I think a DK weight scarf has to potential to become boring and forgotten before I finish! Hopefully dropping the stitches will keep me entertained.

I love the yarn you picked for the clapotis - I also haven't knit it yet...
