3  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Clapotis from Knitty on: January 20, 2008 04:45:49 AM
I love it!
Finished it some time ago.
Works fine both as a scarf by day, as well as an evening wrap by night.
I used a shiny yarn called MEGA IDENA. More on my blog http://alexandrasknits.blogspot.com/2005/11/clapotis.html

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Balsam: a cowl with a swirl on: January 20, 2008 04:27:11 AM
This was a quick and fun knit! It was even the first time I didn't modify a pattern, but followed it all way through.
It was worked in the round top down.
Needle size 5.0 mm/US 8.
Yarn: a leftover I had in my stash... Ornaghi Filati HARMONY4... bought on the market in Neapels, Italy.

I think... the cap is made in stockinette and the braids are ribbed kpkpkpkp....(they look the same on right side and wrong side). I count 18 sts on each scarf-part. Divided by 3 you have 6 sts for each braid-part. Then you need to figure out how many sts there are in the front (between the braids) and in the back. I can't really count them. It seems as if there are 12 sts in the front. The ribbing of the braids continues for 6-8 rows on the hat. You need to have a number of sts that you could divide by 4 (for the decrease of the cap: 4 decreases every two rounds). I would try 12+18+8+18=56sts. Find a yarn that matches that gauge (my head measures 22...); GAUGE: 10 sts/14 rows = 4 inches --> needle size 13US (9mm). You could start from the top or from the braids... I would find an Earflap hat pattern to start from. Here are some patterns:

I hope this makes sense.
