My grandma is turning 80 in a month and I’ve decided to knit her Clapotis.
I’m not really sure what yarn to use, I’m not familiar with the yarn the pattern suggests so I’ve been looking at other Clapotis pictures to find something suitable and easily accessible (at my LYS).
I’m considering going with my beloved Malabrigo, but, it DOES tend to pill, and I don’t know if Clap will look as good when it’s all fuzzy.
I’ve seen beautiful pieces in Noro, but, people say the yarn itself can be pretty rough. I don’t have much experience with Noro, but, since the Clapotis can be worn around the neck I figure it should be soft. Is Noro Silk Garden a decent option?
I just recently saw a picture of Clapotis made with Cascade 220. I know the yarn stores around me carry Cascade but I’m not sure how soft it is. Anyone with first hand experience?
Thanks for your help!
