I'm finally ready to join in the fun - albeit over a year after this KAL started!!
All your beautiful Clapoti (? whats the plural of Clapotis?!) had spurred me on and I wanted to create an equally beautiful one, but when I went to my LYS yesterday the selection was rather limited. I live in Sweden and most yarns seemed to be thick wool or cheapy arcylic. I eventually bought a wool/acrylic mix in purples, blues and pinks which I thought was quite pretty, but it is a lot heavier weight than the ones everyone else has created.
IIt is not as pretty as the yarn looked when it was in a ball and I'm wondered if it'll be too thick and wooly for me to drop the stitches...
Its 75% wool 25% acrylic - has anyone blocked anything similar? Does it give it a bit more drape when blocked.
I'm not sure if I should carry on and end up having a bit thick wooly Clapotis, or admit defeat and buy some nice expensive yarn off the internet as the LYs stores here are a bit rubbish! Any suggestions...
You could use larger needles than the pattern calls for, with less repeats. That will make it more drapey when the stitches are dropped, and about the right size without it being too heavy.
