It's always a good idea to have a light shawl on hand when the weather takes an unexpectedly cool turn - bonus points if that shawl is also fun to knit!
If you've been knitting for a while, you'll probably remember the Clapotis craze of 2004, followed by the Baktus shawl in 2008. As its name implies, this pattern combines them both into a free pattern that's a perfect 1-skein wonder!
Clapo-ktus is a triangle-shaped shawl that begins with 6 stitches and builds its shape by increasing and decreasing stitches. When you're done knitting, you'll deliberately unravel laddered rows of stitches between each stockinette column - and believe us; it's the most fun you'll ever have with unraveled stitches!
This pattern is also easily memorizable, making this shawl a great, packable project to keep on hand for knitting away idle time on car trips or while you're vacationing!
Our Loop Linden is a sumptuous fingering weight blend of buttery soft superwash merino, cashmere, and nylon that's smooth and plush and knits up with the perfect amount of drape. It's a special yarn you'll enjoy snuggling close to your skin!
We dye Linden in-house in a beautiful palette of 26 semi-solid shades. Linden's fiber blend takes the dye like a dream, giving knitted fabrics a dreamy, watercolor-like quality that's never flat but fluidly tonal. It's lovely for solid and lacy shawls and scarves, as well as for fine-gauge sweaters and extra-special socks.
