Thanks all!! for the advice....I have a bunch of this yarn (Bernat softee) I think I will try...and just adjust gauge with needle size....what do you think?

in this color:


That's quite a thick yarn and I suggest using at least size 10.5 needles with it. Maybe even 11s, and certainly the metric sizes between there (7 or 7.5 mm). You could stretch it out when wet and could work on size 10s. The corners will curl a little no matter what, it's because of the pattern, and it looks fine once it's all done.

Are you using the turquoise/blue colorway? That was the one I was using. It looked like this:

It would make a nice summer version of the Clapotis.

Yeah that's the color. It's very pretty, and I figure with it being alpaca/silk it'll be warm enough for a scarf.
