Hi all.

It not to late to join this KAl, i am advanced beginner and soon i will be on section 3 and i m really stuck . Cry
Any help will be apprecaited.

Section 3 (Straight Rows)
Row 1 and all odd-numbered rows: Sl1, p to last 2 sts, p2tog.
Row 2: P1, k2, k tbl, [k1, k tbl, k3, k tbl] to last marker, k1, k tbl, k3, kfb.
Row 4: P1, k1, k tbl, [k1, k tbl, k3, k tbl] to last marker, k1, k tbl, k4, kfb.
Row 6: P1, k tbl, [k1, k tbl, k3, k tbl] to last marker, k1, k tbl, k3, ssk, pm, yo, kfb.
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.
Row 10: P1, k4, k tbl, [k1, k tbl, k3, k tbl] to last marker, k1, k tbl, k1, kfb.
Row 12: P1, k3, k tbl, [k1, k tbl, k3, k tbl] to last marker, k1, k tbl, k2, kfb.

OK, you're just dropping one stitch but you need to let it/make it run or unravel several rows deep at least before you can continue. It doesn't matter exactly how many rows you let it run, because eventually you'll need to make ALL the stitches you drop in the course of making your clapotis run the full length of the piece.

After you do that, you'll have something that resembles a ladder where your dropped stitch was, because each row will have a bar of yarn. Like so:
preg_replace('/(.{49})/', '$1 ', 'stitchstitchstitchstitchstitchstitch___stitchstitchstitchstitchstitchstitch')
preg_replace('/(.{49})/', '$1 ', 'stitchstitchstitchstitchstitchstitch___stitchstitchstitchstitchstitchstitch')
preg_replace('/(.{49})/', '$1 ', 'stitchstitchstitchstitchstitchstitch___stitchstitchstitchstitchstitchstitch')
preg_replace('/(.{49})/', '$1 ', 'stitchstitchstitchstitchstitchstitch___stitchstitchstitchstitchstitchstitch')

You just poke your left needle through and pick up the very top bar, then treat it like a stitch. I always interpreted those directions as wanting me to pick it up from the front, then when you ktbl it becomes a tight, twisted stitch like a make one increase, but I may be wrong on that. I doubt it matters much so long as you're consistent throughout the piece.

The one mistake I made early on was to somehow interpret "k this and foll st tbl" as "k this and foll st TOG tbl". Don't do that, they are still two separate stitches when you get done with them. :-p

You interpreted the instructions correctly. It's kind of like picking up the bar between stitches for a M1 increase.

I made that exact same mistake, and truth be told I felt like a complete you-know-what after I figured it out (ten rows down when my stitches weren't adding up..). Good to know it wasn't just me Cheesy

I can top that. I did it once, then found I was short a stitch, so I increased a stitch because I was too lazy to frog back, then I did another repeat and was short another stitch and decided it was finally time to figure out what the hell I was doing to cause this because it wasn't a fluke anymore.

I'm done!!

My camera's broken so the pictures are really terrible, it's honestly embarassing to put them up here. But there is one picture on my <a href=http://karenmaiko.blogspot.com>blog</a href> As soon as I give it to my Mom I'll get a better picture with her modelling it.

It went surprisingly quick. I was done in less than a week and apparently those skeins of yarn were WAY bigger than I thought, I still have some left from the first ball of yarn, never even touched the second one.

I'm starting a mini-clap in SWTC Phoenix (100% soysilk and 100% delicious). I think I'm only going to do one or two increase sections and make it more scarf like.

 Cry Hi... I have run into a big problem on my clap. I can't figure out what has gone wrong, but the stitches won't drop. They're stuck! (And yes, I dropped the right stitch.) Here's a picture:

It's not the best picture but it's the best I can manage. It's like all of the sudden the thread goes in the wrong direction.I'm halfway through... Please HELP!  Cry

BoredOutOfMyMind- Okay, first thing is don't freak out, because you may not have to frog all of your hard work. What I would do is rip out those three stitches all the way down to where they are stuck. Untangle it as best you can then fix the first stitch which should be knit through the back loop, then the second which should be stockinette, then the third which should be knit through the back loop. You will have to know how to fix dropped stitches, but there is lots of reference for that I think that may fix it. Good Luck
