Okay, I have seen many people do the Clapotis Pattern from Knitty but I am having problems with the 2nd row!

CO 2 st
Row 1: P1, pfb (at the end of this row there are 2 stitches, correct)
Row 2: Sl1, K1, Place marker, yo, kfb (where does the 3rd stitch that you kfb into come from?)

P1, Pfb will produce 3 stitches. The pfb is an increase, so you'd have the first purl and the two from the purl front and back.

no, the first row, you P1, the pfb which is purl into the front of the stitch and then into the back of the stitch producing two stitches. That is how you get the thrid stitch on the next row

Well, that's what you get for participating in a mystery auction, right? ;)

Me too! Me too!

I love Clapotis pictures -- I have some silk I'm thinking of using for mine. Only problem is I'm one skein short so I won't be able to make it as wide.

Oh well -- I'm thinking of a Mmmalabrigo version, too.

Best,
Susan

Well, I have been working on it all afternoon and I absolutely LOVE IT. I made it to the first row of dropped stitches.

A couple months ago Michaels had a clearance on a bunch of novelty yarns supposedly because they were being discontinued. Included in that sale was Lion Brand Incredible. I love the tye dyed look of that yarn so I picked up EVERY one they had in the same dye lot. I got over 20 balls at $2.00 each-regular $5.99

I knew I wanted to make a wrap with it. Also I wanted a belt. I wanted to do them to dress up plain jeans and a white t-shirt. I do a lot of festivals and such where I am wandering around dusty fairgrounds, then stopping at a nice restaurant on the way home. My best friend and I used to do that all the time and since he died I carry on the tradition alone. The difference is, now I am much more self conscious-I guess because when I was with Daniel no one else existed, so it didn't matter if anyone else noticed my dusty shoes and overly casual attire. Anyway, short of changing in the car, I wantd to come up with an idea to dress up classic old jeans and t-shirt.

So ta daaaa. My solution is a wrap in shades of blue (to blend with any color jeans), a belt to match, and I am even thinking of doing a top. I haven't worked out the design yet... but I am thinking of a regular old tank top with knit straps and using the ribon yarn to embroider a celtic knotwork design. Anyway, I am sure it will come together somehow. :)

Pics tomorrow evening. But for now this is the color:

I have yarn for the clap... maybe I should dig it out :thinking:

Chel, I thought there was a KAL thread for the clap, but I couldn't find it... maybe you can start a KAL?
