When you drop the stitch in section 3, it kinda runs down into the sections that you knit before hand. Kind of like when you get a run in your stockings. You have to knit a solid part first so that when you drop the stitch it has someplace to run. 

OOOOOO okay, I think I get what you were thinking. Were you thinking that you dropped one stitch everytime you knit past one of those "stripes"? Well, what happens is you knit solid pieces of fabric and drop stitches at the top and they run down the length of the wrap down to the bottom. So, you just haven't gotten to the part of the clap where you drop your first stitch. The solid fabric triangle that you have now will have the dropped stitches running through it.

Hope that helps.

Request:  I have one ball of yarn, would someone help me figure out how to make a mini-clapotis?  Please?  You will win my love and adoration forever and ever.

Here's a part of this thread where someone posted their mini-clap, and a psuedo-tutorial later on the page. I hope that helps. How big is your ball of yarn? It might be mini-mini-clap. That would be cute. Good luck and postpostpost when your finished!!

I knit this one up over a summer sitting at the beach.

I used TLC's Amore, about 2 1/2 balls for about $8 each at Zellers.

The pictures aren't that great, and the shawl turned out a lot bigger then I expected...I was aiming for a biggish scarf and ended up with a nice sized wrap which is okay too I guess.

 Shocked I am very jelous! Your Clapotis is so nice, and lucky you to find nice inexpensive yarn!!

I am having a melt down, so to say. I have used 2/3 skiens of my yarn and am only 1/2 way done! Plus, I just happend to like the summer yarn that of course is not in stalk anymore, let alone I can't find any other store that even stalks this yarn! I am searching online, but may have to just give up and have the width shorter  Cry Cry. I am heart broken. This yarn is so pretty! And soft.... and I was so enjoying my fantasy of running around in the park with it.  Cry i need a hug.

Proof that I started my clapotis on the plane to Dublin!

It's in Cara Mia, and really awesomely soft. Considering the yarn was $2.50 a ball, I'm extatic about this project.  Grin

One repeat away from being done with the increases... I hope to get to my first straight section repeat at lunch today!

Hey guys! I finished my Clapotis weeks ago, but haven't gotten around posting here.
Here it is anyway  Grin

I used 300g of Hipknits silk in Pretty in Pink colourway. I did 2 less increase repeats and 2 more straight repeat. Do you think it's too long?
I wanted to do more of this, but maybe just the mini version  Smiley

I just got yarn and am going to start this after all the Christmas knitting, a little late to be jumping on the band wagon, but I'm so excited.  I posted a pic of the yarn on my blog if you want to see! Smiley

I finished my second Clapotis and gave it to my Mother In Law for Christmas... I think she likes it!  I just wanted to let you all know that I used Cascade Sierra (cotton/wool blend) and it worked up beautifully!  Thought that might be helpful for some of you looking to make a year round garment.

I'm getting ready to start my first clpotis in a beautiful purple/pink mohair, kind of fuzzy for my mom.  Gonna work on it during the rose bowl tonight.  I'll see if I can post a pic of my progress from tonight so you guys can see the yarn.
