Red Clapotis Shawl

This is almost unbelievable but I have to finish this long UFO project one day…. I started knitting this last January 2010 and I put it away as I was almost thinking of ripping it open and knit another pattern with this gorgeous yarn called Fleece Artist Silk Stream I used 2 Skeins and needle size 4mm for this shawl.   I could not have the heart to undoooooo…… all this and as I do love the pattern I finally finish it …… I love the result sooo long I can have some fun wearing this one in the coming nicer weather….

This pattern is also on Ravelry for fee

Das ist fast unglaublich, aber ich musste dieses lange UFO-Projekt eines Tages fertig stricken.  Letzten Januar 2010 habe ich mit diesem Schal angefangen einige male dachte ich dass ich alles wieder öffnen werde und ein anderes Muster damit stricken sollte. 
Doch ging mir das nicht übers Herz dass alles auf zu trennen.  So entlich, der Schal ist fertig geworden….mit diesem  tollen Garn genannt: Fleece Artist Silk Stream habe ich 2 Stränge und Nadelstärke 4mm  gebraucht.  Mir gefällt das Ergebnis, sooo schön Lang und Breit ist er, da kann ich etwas Spaß haben ihn zu tragen  in dem kommenden schönen Frühlings Wetter hoffe ich.
 
Dieses Muster ist auch auf Ravelry Gratis zu bekommen.
 

Just a few of my “Clapotis” Scarfs to Show

“Clapotis Scarf”

This particular scarf pattern has really grabbed my interested to knit several of them.  It is so much fun to knit with all the fun Yarns.   Fleece Artist,  Hand Dyed Yarns and some variegated Yarns can make a unique one of a kind pattern. http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall04/PATTclapotis.html

You decrease on one side and increase on the other side of the Scarf.  As you knit along you drop stitches in the appropriate places and the fun begins.  One always gets this great surprise in how different each scarf looks at the end.  I have not knit one that turned out the same. For fun I have added some  Seedbeads to the ends that the stitch gets dropped down.  looks nice too.   You can add as many repeats of the pattern to make it the width you like.  I am tempted to knit a blanket in this pattern with some of my stashed wool.  I will see how my free time will be over this winter.
