This is the Clapotis pattern (free!) knit in the Netherfield colorway of Twisted Fiber Arts’ Shiny. Perfect yarn for a slinky scarf! I think the name is French, but that doesn’t help me much. I didn’t get much past “Je m’appel Kiersten” in French.
It’s a clever pattern, knit on the diagonal, with intentional dropped stitches. The first few really freaked me out, but then it became sort of addicting.
I modified the pattern by doing less than half of the repeats to get the scarf-like width I wanted. The original pattern makes a much wider shawl, and I’m tempted…sorely tempted.
This scarf is another testimonial to the magic of blocking…it was a rolled-upon-itself mess of silky yarn yesterday afternoon. With the help of a little H2O and the back of my couch, it now shows off its lovliness…over 6 feet of lovliness.
