Ok, finally pictures of my Clapotis.  I did this out of recycled Sari Silk for my Aunt Marti who's an opera professor in Salzburg, Austria.  It actually gets cold enough there unlike here (So Cal) to wear a silk wrap.  It was huge and heavy and I love it, and she loved it which is what really matters.  She let me stay with her this summer, so this was my thank you.

I want to make a Clapotis scarf out of sari yarn!  Now I want to even more... yours looks great! Do you have any recommendations for good places to get it (the less $$ the better)?

I got my sari silk from ebay I paid like $50 for 10 skeins, totally worth it and the money goes to a good cause.  But that was more than enough to finish that clapotis.  A warning though, that stuff is hard to drop stitches so you'll have to clip some of the strings.

Beesting, how many skeins did you use and how long did it take you?  It's gorgeous.  I love sari silk!  Smiley

Also, what was your gauge--do you remember?

it took about 9 and a half skeins, and I'm not sure what the gauge was, but I used a US 9 needle if that helps.

Hmm... I was thinking of making a more scarf sized instead of a wrap. I don't know that I have need for a full-sized wrap. Is that do-able?

So I've been going through this thread all night trying to figure out how to k tbl and just learned that I use the combined knitting method. Luckily I found the issue addressed on Grumperina's website, so I think I can figure out how to knit Clapotis without too much trouble.

I am making it for my grandma for Christmas. I bought Artyarns' Supermerino in a light pink. Wish me luck!

Good luck, sweet. Smiley I'll be around here too, working on mine. I'm in the increase section, on the fourth way through that pattern set. Once you get used to the k tbls and kfbs/pfbs, it gets really easy. I'm using hair elastics as my place markers.

You can make a Clapotis in any size, from a skinny scarf to afghan size. The width depends how many increase repeats are done, the length by the straight section repeats.
