This is a mini clapotis in noro silk garden lite (2015). I used 3 skeins and it ended up measuring almost 79" long x 11"  across.
I knitted this while on vacation, so it ended up being my souvenir scarf  Wink

Another gorgeous clapotis!  It's amazing how such a simple pattern can turn out so nice & how each different yarn gives it a certain special touch.  That is beautiful!

wow, that's a lovely colorway!  you really paired it with the pattern well.  it almost looks like a tie-dyed or batik kind of scarf, like some of my friends had (they were missionary kids in Africa).  and those were really cool, so to be reminded of them by this gives it a score of Awesome in my book  Cheesy

Thanks for the comments! I like the colors, I'm just not used to wearing orange. My sister joked that it looked like a clown's tie. I will definitely wear it, that's for sure!

I didn't use that pattern, I think I did a 15-70-15 ratio, I used about 15% of the yarn on the set-up rows and increase rows, 70% for the straight rows and another 15% for the decrease and final rows.
Hope this is helpful!
