Clapotis Wannabe




I really wanted a Clapotis but every time I tried to do it, I lost my place and had to frog it....again and again....

Oh how I longed to have one, though....so I decided to fake it!

This project is bias knit.

I'm using US7 Harmony Woods Circulars. Gauge is not critical. It's a lark...fake it til you make it. Knit the gauge that pleases you!

This yarn is Blue Heron Yarns Rayon Metallic in Deep Blue Sea/Silver

Here you are, my Clapotis Wannabe:


CO 4
K4
Rows
1-7: K1, YO, Knit across for 7 rows
8: Yo, K1, Yo, K1 for the entire row

Row 9 Knit across dropping every YO (this creates the 'effect' of the dropped stitch....approximately ;) )


10-16: K1, YO, Knit across for 7 rows
17: Yo, K1, Yo, K1 for the entire row

Row 19 Knit across dropping every YO (this creates the 'effect' of the dropped stitch....approximately ;) )

Knit across the next row with no increase

Repeat

(more later...I'm still working out this pattern for the width after the increase.)
