Introduction: Clapotis for Cara

Picture of Clapotis for Cara

I knit this clapotis (scarf/shawl) for my friend, Cara, for Christmas -- she also got a hat. Years ago she knit me a sweater and her mom was the fist knitter I really saw creating cool stuff, so they are an inspirational family! I love this pattern and though it was daunting to read the instructions, some wonderful charts from people in the KAL made it all make sense; and once I started it was a fast and interesting knit. With the leftover yarn, I made a matching hat. I'll be making a clapotis for myself soon!

Great job, you must be good of this stuff. I realized you also posted "Clapotis for Mom". I didn't see one called "Clapotis for GorillazMiko". Just kidding, nice work!
