Nina’s ‘Clapton’

Nina made this version of Isabel Kraemer’s design Clapton, using her favourite yarn, Fleece Artist 2/8 Blue Face Leicester in black, with one skein of Malabrigo Mechita in gold for the highlights.

It’s a lovely design, with a classic shape and relatively simple stranded pattern for the yoke.  And, like anything worked in BFL 2/8, it is light, warm, soft, and luscious.

Nina made this slightly longer, for a tunic-length sweater, and needed just a bit more than two skeins of 2/8.  She thinks that a regular length sweater, in most of the smaller sizes, could be made with just two skeins of 2/8.  If you’d like to make one like it, Nina would be happy to advise about yarn quantities.
