Finished Object - Clapotis Scarf

(Click picture for Larger View)

Yarn: Schachenmayr La Nova Ribbon Yarn
Time: ?? Don't remember
Inspiration: Knitty's Clapotis
Yardage: approx. 6 balls
Modifications: Did fewer increase, decrease an straight repeats, making it thinner and shorter

Finally got around to posting the pictures of my scarf length Clapotis. This was a stash buster for me. Well, I had 4 balls and had to buy 2 more to finish her off. I needed more at the end but I just decreased more rapidly to end the ball just before it was too late.

Normally I would have a shot of it being worn but (1) I don't like it that much as it is not quite big enough and it's stripey which is not really my thing and (2) I am too lazy to go back and truly showcase a project finished months ago. Instead I am making another Clapotis that is the actual Stole size and will show that one when it joins the FO listing.
