Looks like a Clapotis blocking wrapped up in a towel, to me! ;)

But it's not!!! LOL, I don't think that would fit....LOL, that would be like a felted clapotis....in which case ya'll would be emailing me in the looney bin :shock: ! ...........no wise cracks Denise...........
It is the beginning of the construction of the clapotis hat that I knit today, of course I knew ya'll would know ;) ! I have to block the ends so I can seam them together before I put the top on tomorrow
:cheering: :cheering: Now I'm off to figure out what, if anything I want to do to fingerless gloves............................ :thumbsup:

Tricky, tricky. I thought it might be the hat, but I couldn't figure out why it would be blocking before it was done. Now I know.
I thought you might have rolled up the Clapotis in the towel. Now I see the line where the two sides meet. :doh:

A-ha! I thought it looked too small to be the actual clapotis..... ;)

Oh--Rebecca-I didn't know WHAT it was! But the colors are purdy! What pattern are you using for the fingerless gloves? My grandson really wants some ; are they very hard to do? I can use dps, and I've done several pairs of socks...

I had no idea!! I really need to check out this clapotis pattern I keep thinking I am then I get sidetracked!! :thumbsup:

LOL, yep, my hat that I am about to go finish...I hope ;) . Then I will see how much yarn I have left & can then figure out what I will do with the fingerless gloves :D
Trudy, I use this pattern (http://www.scknitting.com/spring2005/mitts-to-fit.html) for my fingerless gloves bc you can customize the size for any hand, any yarn; you just need a few measurements of the hand & your gauge & it's very easy! There's a worksheet that goes with it, too. Have fun!
I'm off to finish the hat............................................... .. :waving:

I finished the hat a while ago, but have been having horrible problems with my camera :( ....hopefully it's something simple that :inlove: Lonnie can fix!
I will say this....that is NOT the easiest seam I've ever sewn together!!
Okay, after I knit the small hat with a very small version of the clapotis pattern (http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall04/PATTclapotis.html) I blocked the ends (they were far too curly to seam) and then seamed them, picked up 72 sts & did the spiral decrease so that it looked like a pinwheel. I so, so love this cool blog (http://www.almostrandom.com/needlesnhooks/patterns/clapotiscap.html) where I found the pattern :cheering: :cheering:
Completed Clapotis Hat :D
Clapotis, Hat & me....sideways...and looking 'elongated' bc of software :roflhard: :rofling:

Oh. My. God. That hat is a masterpiece. An architectural wonder. WOW. I never in a million years would have thought to do a hat like that. Wow. Again. Seriously.

I didn't think I could be more stunned than by your Clapotis scarf -- but that hat is amazing! However -- the best part of this post is getting to see YOU! :D :D

Thanks everyone..I wish I could take the credit for the hat, but this girl (I'm ashamed :blush: to say that I don't know her name) with this very cool blog (http://www.almostrandom.com/needlesnhooks/patterns/clapotiscap.html) came up with it...she's got some very cool photos on her blog of hats & clapotis & hat tips! Boy, I was one happy girl when I found this pattern, too, bc I sure didn't wanna write one..LOL! I just couldn't have done it justice!! If I were many years younger I would do the dropped sts on the fingerless gloves, but I just can't pull that one off ;) ...LOL!!
So, I'm off to TRY to decide how to do these gloves, just the right stitch hasn't hit me yet :wall: ...it will ;)
Thanks again everyone ;)
I highly recommend knitting clapotis, whether u do a scarf, the current size or even enlarging it. I am going to do a bigger, solid color one @ some point in the future........... ;)
