Why does it seem like in the beginning of the pattern...or section 2, that if you repeat it twice like it asks...the pattern looks more like a solid fabric instead of one with dropped stitches?

Ok, after having bought the Brooks 4Play eons ago, I was about to pack it up for my flight to Ireland, when I realized it wasn't in balls. Darnit. I don't have a ball winder, and the boyfriend is busy packing. So I'm making one out of Cara Mia in a tan color. I'm hoping that it ends up being *sophisticated* and not poopy.

I will report on my results when I return!

i'm not sure if i understand your question but i'll try to answer.

it should be a solid triangle of stockinette until you get to drop the stitches in section 3 (straight rows).  the YOs you are doing on the 12th and final row of each repeat in section 2 (increase rows) will be where the stitches drop down to.

hope that helps!  let me know if that's not what you were asking.  Smiley

Thank you, wilemina_zoot Smiley


The part that confuses me is this part at the bottom of section 2....it's all solid? or to I go straight to Section 3?
Section 2 (Increase Rows)
Repeat Increase Rows 1-12 six times more. 101 sts on needle.
Repeat Increase Rows 1 to 6 once more. 107 sts on needle.

after you do rows 1-6 again, you should still have one solid piece... then you go to section 3, where you begin to drop the stitches.  Between every pair of twisted stitches is the stitch that you will drop.  It becomes all lacy like MAGIC! Smiley  Good luck!

It just looked like from most of the photos of finished clapotis', that there were no solid portions and were all solid-drop-solid-drop.

I hope that makes sense Undecided
