Here's my clapotis.  I knit it with fingering weight handspun on size 7 circulars.  It doesn't crunch up like the pattern shows, which I think is due to both the large gauge and the fact that I blocked it flat but I actually like it better this way.

Symphony, approx. 21" X 62" :

how easy was the project if I may ask?
I really like the way yours came out and if it's not to hard and I can find the yarn I might have a go at it!

I personally think it was easy.  The only difficulty I had was remembering to drop the second stitch during row 8 of the decreases at the end, because during the rest of the scarf, you only drop one stitch.  You can see day-by-day notes on my Ravelry page at http://www.ravelry.com/knkurz/clapotis Smiley

Boldly going where others have probably been.

I never have been able to finish my clapotis! I think it was the yarn. I used a bamboo and the strings kept coming apart and frusted me to no end. I would love to give it another try some day. Maybe this will be my inspiration  Grin
