I made this using 2 1/2 skeins of the Southwest Trading Company's 100% Bamboo yarn on #6 circular needles.  It felt like I was literally knitting with DMC Floss!!!  It's about 6 feet long, so it drapes nicely as a scarf and wrap.  I doubled the increase portion.

The material is beautiful, wonderfully soft to the touch, and light. 

I'm giving it to my bestfriend for her birthday on Tuesday. I'll post a pic of her wearing it Smiley

The colours on that yarn are amazing.  They really go well with the pattern.

The pattern is here:

The bamboo clapotis is so much drapier than the wool ones I've seen. Good job!

That's absolutely beautiful. You chose colours I would have chosen.

I keep wanting to make this, but I'm trying to find the right yarn for it (that doesn't cost a fortune, sigh).

 AMAZING. Was the yarn super hard to work with? You said it was like DMC floss, but I'm wondering just how bad that is...
