My Clapotis has begun! I couldn't wait for the Knitting Olympics to start. Once my Malabrigo was in the house, it begged to be paid attention to, and I could not resist. So I'm using Malabrio merino in the color Amoroso and the pinks, reds, and ever-so-subtle purples and oranges are just spectacular. I can't wait to finish this baby...

edit: Ok, I looked. They came out just purty!  Did you use one strand or two? I bought two skeins of the same colorway, so I was thinking of double stranding...but I like yours, they are nice and lacy.

I only used a single strand and it took less then a full hank of the yarn in both cases, I can't remember if I did all of the increases or repeats.  It's amazing when you're making it lacy, how much it grows when you block it.  Double stranding might be nice as well.  I would swatch and see which you like better in a stockinette stitch.  Smiley

Kimbabwe - yours is starting to look fantastic!  It's surprising how lightweight the malabrigo ends up being and mine's pretty long.  Can't wait to see the finished clapotis.

Hi y'all!

I read through all 37 pages over the last few days, because I was nervous about starting this pattern. Roll Eyes Thanks all of you for posting such useful info about not using stitch markers and yarn subs, etc.! Cheesy

I just started my "Clap" tonight... I am using the same yarn luv2stitch (Carolyn) used, Moda Dea Sassy Stripes but in"Crush" which is a really yummy pink color:



I really love it- soft warm, and machine washable. Clapotis is only costing me $10, which is great, because my budget right now doesn't go farther than that! I was thinking of using the SWTC bamboo, in Bougainvillea, but that was a little more than my budget at the moment. I am so happy to find a sub... and I think this Clap will come in handy... I went to see a movie with DH today and was freezing... I think they had the air conditioner on!  Angry  I was totally wishing for the clap!

I think my next one will be made out of this yarn. i just didn't have the patience to wait for it to come in the mail, lol.

Thanks luv2stitch for answering my email about the yarn!

Oh help!

I am in Section 2 and I am totally confused about something.

All through Section 1 I have been purling that stitch between the two ktbl stitches, so that I don't have to use stitch markers... I got that. So now that I am in Section 2, what do I do? Do I purl all the stitches that are between ktbl stitches? Or just one ? Like for example, is Row 2 in Section 2 supposed to be read:

Row 2: Sl1, k1, ktbl,[p1,ktbl,p3,ktbl] to last marker, p1, ktbl, kfb.

OR

Row 2: Sl1, k1, ktbl, [p1,ktbl,k3,ktbl] to last marker, p1, ktbl, kfb.

Huh

Help!

Like example 2. You continue on the same way you've been doing that side (the front side, right?) before. And if you're using markers, you don't have to purl the stitch, unless you just want a double safe way of knowing where you are.

Thanks for your help... I was able to figure it out, so I am actually not using markers, and I am doing fine! I am so excited... I feel now that I have the "flow" and rhythm of the pattern down, it is all going so much faster!
