Clapotis? Not quite....

I found this link on the Angel Yarns Knitting Forums for a 'Mini Clapotis'. The pattern which is on Midnightknitter's site, is an adaptation of Knitty.com's Clapotis.

This is going on my RATHER LARGE to do list.

I've always wanted to make a Clapotis but I'm terrified by all the setting up rows - it looks so daunting. I figure if I make a mini one, it only needs two balls of wool and I can practice the technique without feeling guilty if I get it wrong.

At the end of the day it's just a drop stitch scarf knit on the diagonal. Right?

You should give it a try. I think the clap is fun. LOL.

Clapotis is a great pattern and once you start it Bernie you will see that it is n't that bad!

Do you know, I've never really fancied the Clapotis pattern - all those dropped stitches I think LOL. But I shall watch your progress with interest :)
