Two BRF WIPs

1. I have begun the Clapotis.


This pattern involves intentionally dropping stitches every inch or so. To set up for that, the stitch on either side is knitted through the back loop. This little twist adds structure (or so they say). For now it just makes the knitting look all wonky and uneven (though this photo is truer to the actual colors than the one above):



See the 3 bands of smooth stockinette bordered by more rag-tag stitching? This better shake out after finishing the pattern or blocking.

2. I am halfway done with the Clementine Shawlette. Its color changes are much more subtle...and perfectly suited to this elegant little drape.

Both look gorgeous. Clementine is turning out nicely in that color. You'll have two things finished pretty close together - way to go!

Great pattern choices! They both look VERY nice already.
Would love to hear more about your Clapotis experience, I have this on my To Knit List. :)

Clapotis is the reason I bought my BRF yarn. I haven't started yet, but I hope your version will be inspiring!
