Clafoutis

Published in Knitty, Spring + Summer 2018

Every season there is a new Knitty issue with many wonderful new patterns. Most especially, there was Clapotis by Kate Gilbert. One of the most famous Knitty patterns, for a long time it was the design with the most projects on Ravelry—and still is in the top 5. I’ve never tired of the delight of knitting on the bias and dropping stitches to watch them run. Clafoutis (a delicious baked cherry dessert) has been inspired by, and borrows from, Clapotis. Meant to be a light layer that looks great over a tank top or a long sleeve shirt. Created with a hand painted yarn, like the original. Clafoutis is a swingy, easy layer, knit top down, with panels of Clapotis worked separately and attached in place.

Modeled by the lovely and talented, Emily Langtiw. Check out her cheery and insightful blog at SeaShorties.com
