The Big This is Knit 15th Birthday Retro Clapotis Knit-a-Long!

It may have been published back in 2004, but Kate Gilbert's Clapotis is still a go-to pattern for knitters worldwide to this day. This design was one of the first impromptu knit-a-longs that we held in the shop, so we're going "retro" for the shop's 15th Birthday Celebrations.

We have even sourced a special new Townhouse Yarns base for the occasion - Westbury Worsted - and Jenny has picked a signature palette from the Townhouse range for our KAL Kits.

Yarn Care

Westbury Worsted is a a gently spun luxury blend of merino and silk fibres. A little extra love can be required for a yarn this special. If loose fibres begin to pill then we can highly recommend the Gleener Pill Remover to keep your Clapotis looking its best.

Frequently Asked Questions

We're so glad you asked! It's an elegant scarf / wrap pattern, designed by Kate Gilbert, that was first released through the online knitting magazine Knitty.com in 2004

We used this pattern for our first impromptu KAL in the early days of This is Knit. Our first versions are still so treasured that we decided to "go retro" and revisit this fabulous design for our special 15th Birthday KAL.

You can find the pattern here.

The pattern recommends 5mm straight needles, but you can absolutely use a circular needle too and just knit back-and-forth.

Not just yet. For this new yarn launch we are concentrating on dyeing Clapotis Kit Pre-Orders first.

We expect to make individual skeins available later in the Autumn of 2021.
