I find the purling tip real helpful... although I had no problems using the marker... it helped me to see when i should k tbl, but after getting to know the pattern better, purling makes it much faster to get thru the knits.  although knitting the whole row makes it faster thru knitting, but some how the purling makes it faster... if that all makes sense.

sorry for my rambling... it's late... where i am.

oh ok. it is kinda stupid for me to realize that i'd like my clapotis longer but heyyy... anyway, i finished my clapotis long time ago but now i am thinking it is not good as it is. i would love to make it longer but i am not sure how to rip. i dont want to rip the entire project.. just a little to make it possible to work on it more.. is it possible (i dropped all the stitches already) ? can anyone help?

Take it out to where you began the decrease section, then put the stitches back on the needles. Don't worry about the dropped ones, put the bar they used be on the needle as if it were a stitch too. Then begin knitting until it's the length you want. When you go to drop the ones that were dropped before, you probably won't be able to tell the difference.

Finis!

I started it mid July, and finished it at 5 am this morning  Grin





I used Red heart Symphony (fuzzy!) and sz 7 needles.  It was a lot easier to drop the stitches than I thought it would be.

Thanks!

Oh, I forgot to mention, I had 4 balls of that stuff, and I never finished the first 2. So I think I'm going to do the hat based off the clappy pattern to go with it. And if I still have any left, I'm going to make a pair of wrist warmers too Tongue

Then I'm out of clappy-inspired ideas.

I tried making the hat, but didn't care for the style, so I used Odessa (without the beads) and it goes with the patterning pretty well.

I think I agree with you....the Clap hat looks a bit bulkier than the odessa. Thanks!
