It wasn't so much bulkier as just clumsier in joining the ends, and the style which is bascially a band with a crown, just don't like them that way. I prefer something like the slouch/beret, and added some increases so the Odessa would be bit larger on the top section.

Start: June 22, 2007
Finished Officially: Aug 25, 2007
yarn: GeeYouKnit!'s Appliance Superwash sock yarn.
Skeins used: 1 full skein, and partial of a second skein with a lot left over.

tada!! I finally weaved in the ends... somehow weaving the ends in makes this project complete!!!  Even though I've finished knitting it last week.  I took a couple of pictures with it... including me standing in front of the mirror really enjoying my clappy, but i like this one the best.  darn the days when i had people around me to take pictures of my finished projects for me!! 

do you love it? 

I think I'm going to look around for another yarn and start another one... i really like how lightweight this sock yarn one is, and how fluffy it seems. It didn't drop as easily as the first unfinished clapotis that i started, most likely due to it's nature of the first clapotis being a silky soy fiber.  But this sock yarn didn't provide too much issues. 

the main thing i liked about using the sock yarn is the fact that i had very little ends to weave in.  It wasn't until later in the knitting that I found the tip about using a purl stitch instead of stitch markers.  Let me tell you, once you get it around your head about using purl, the knitting just makes you fly by.. I don't know what it is about the stitch marker, but it totally slows you down.

(as i'm the only one it seems having problems problems viewing flickr pictures, should you also have problems viewing flickr pictures, there is the obligatory mention in my blog. let me know if any of those pictures are not the right side up!)

That is SO PRETTY Shocked I love those light oceany colors. That's currently my favorite clap ever.

i've finally caved and starting knitting one of these. I'm making a scarf width clap (two repeats of the increase section) for my gf's birthday in november. i'm using some no-name mill ends that she picked out at acmoore.

i'm a bit further along than this now and have even dropped a few stitches! but this picture really shows the colors as they are in real life.

My second Clapotis - a mini-sized one in Sea Silk on US size 6. Shiny, drapey, smelly (in a good way.) About 1/3 of the way there.

i need your help guys!

so i'm going to make a smaller version of the clapotis, i got 4 balls of noro silk garden lite (136 yards each aprox) .

i don't want it as thin as the scarf mini-clap version (whereas you only do one of the increase sections).

i do want to use up as much as the yarn as possible because i'd like it to be slighly shawl like if possible (be able to wrap around shoulders).

i know that set up and increase sections is equal to the decreasing section. So tell me if this logic is correct or if i should try to do more accurate/specific calculations (i just am bad at math) :

my logic is i use up 1 ball of the noro on the increase rows (or as much of the ball as possible), use 2 balls on the straight section, then use remaining 1 ball on the decreases.

do you think this will work?

That may work, but it may be more of a square. You can do about 4 or 5 increases (instead of the 7 total), and then measure along the right edge from the CO to your needle. Add a couple inches and that's about how wide it will be. Take it from there....
