Well I started mine about a month ago and I was to cheap to go out and buy the noro so i just grabbed some varigated yarn at my lys.  Now... I hate it.  I just went n ebay and bought the noro silk garden lite.  That should get the clappy rollin again.  Any suggestions on what I can make with the yarn below???  I had gotten alot further but i'm gonna rip it out now and wait for my noro to get here!!  I consider it an early christmas present!!! Roll Eyes

I love the way the Knotted Openwork Scarf pattern turns out when you do it with thicker yarn on smaller needles. See how it turns this Red Heart varigated acrylic into beautiousness: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=130549.0

Another person used Manos Del Urugay. There's a link to that post and the pattern for the stitch somewhere in that linked thread. You don't have to make a scarf, either, but if you have an aversion to ordinary varigation you might swatch up that stitch pattern on a couple of different needle sizes, and then use it in whatever kind of garment you make.

I hope this doesn't bother anyone, but I'm dying to know if I'm reading the pattern right.  I just finished my first dropped stitch in the Straight Rows section, and it looks wonky to me (the dropped sts form a crescent shape, actually, and not a straight line):


Quote
Row 8: P1, remove marker, drop next st, let it drop down several rows, pick up top bar with left needle to form a new st (make sure this st isn't twisted), k this and foll st tbl, k3, k tbl, [k1, k tbl, k3, k tbl] to last marker, k1, k tbl, kfb.

The top dropped stitch is supposed to be picked up, without twisting it at all?  But, then I'm supposed to knit it thru the back instead of front?  That'll twist it, right?  But, then on Row 9 I'll be purling it together with the last stitch...   Or, does the crescent shape just block out?

not to worry! the corner kind of naturally curls up, if you do a few more straight rows and drop a few more rows of stitches, it starts coming along nicely.  Smiley i'm not sure how super flat it blocks out though (i'm still at the straight row stage too hee) hope that helps

Thanks Cheesy  I was starting to worry there, so it's good to know that's normal (it just looks so odd right now Wink)

*swoons* I just had the best swap partner ever, cuz she sent me 3 balls of Blue Moon Socks That Rock heavyweight superwash yarn to make a Clapotis.  The tag says that the colourway is "Highway".  (I keep cuddling it periodically.)

I was wondering what that yarn was. It's sooo lovely!

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.

fyberduck,

Yes, that first corner curves a bit, it's not going to be a sharp 90 degree angle. And you do actually twist the picked up bar stitch when you knit it. That firms up the stitches a little. It should look just fine when you're finished. Or curl up so it's not noticeable anyway... it's suppposed to curl. The pattern designer says not to block - it will take away the ripples that the dropped stitches form.

Seems like my clapotis is going to end up a bit short  Embarrassed I'm one skein short of making the whole fabulous length, and... apparently, my yarn has gone out of production. Sad

So if anyone has, or knows someone who has, a skein of Debbie Bliss Maya color no 04 (I think..), I'd be overjoyed to buy/trade it from that person!


Having measured around a bit, I'm just going to make do with what I have... It'll work out! I hope

Thanks Grin  That helps a lot, I kept wanting to fiddle with it (which would have been veryvery bad), but now I'll leave it be.
