Mini-Clapotis!

Pattern: Clapotis
Source: MidnightKnitter.com
Yarn: SWTC Bamboo, 2 skeins Bougainvillea
Size: 65" by 8"

So I altered the altered pattern ... I did 16 straight sections instead of the 8 called for in the pattern. As written, it's just too darn short. I probably could've gotten another repeat out of the yarn I had left, but it was long enough for my purposes.

The yarn is really drapey, heavy, and lovely. It's not silky soft, but it's nice. There was some color pooling along the edge; I think the double-stranding helped to mitigate that. The stitch definition is really nice.

I've already ordered some Knitpicks Andean Silk to make the full-size version. ;-) I see why people were so addicted to making these!

Very pretty! I was sort of enjoying the half-clap size but my full size clapotis is in serious danger of being ripped out because I'd rather hammer pencils into my head than knit one more row of it.

That's really freakin' cute. I've printed the pattern for my mum to make her own, what a great idea to shorten it though.
Welcome back. Hope all is getting better...for a lack of words.
Cheers.
