I am finally contemplating knitting a Clapotis from Knitty. I have four skeins of Manos del Uruguay which demand something interesting but not too fancy. I hope this will be just the thing.

I have two colors of Manos; one solid (dark blue) and one variegated (dark blues/browney-oranges/teals). I would like to do stripes. Fibonacci inspired stripes.

I am concerned about having enough yarn but will buy more if necessary.

I have two options. Each requires a different striping pattern. One will mean a shorter/possibly thinner scarf/shawl/wrap, the other a larger/possibly wider one.

Which striping pattern is more eye-pleasing? Keep in mind that the stripes will be at a 45 degree angle. Ignore the fact that I used a different color in the second option.

I like the top option better.

Another vote for the top option. I think it will complement the dropped stitches more than the other will.

Thanks, guys (gals)! I'll go with the first option. It'll make for a smaller/shorter Clapotis but maybe then I won't need to buy more yarn! :)
