Good morning, everyone! Here is the first set of exciting news coming up...I have completely revised my second most popular free pattern, the "Dummy Clap Shawl" pattern AND video tutorial, and it still being offered for free by yours truly. Lucky ducks.
The 2015 Revised "Dummy Clap Shawl" Pattern
ABOUT THE PATTERN
This pattern was originally inspired by the infamous “Clapoltis” shawl that has diagonal laddering of dropped stitches. It’s a fabulous pattern, but is a little instructionally-intimidating, so in 2008 I came up with a mock-up pattern with a similar effect. The laddering doesn’t slant on a diagonal, but this pattern has minimal instructions with a close-to-same look with instructions so easy you can practically knit it hanging from a tree upside-down while munching on pizza in the dark. If that’s your thing.
