Ribbon Stashbusting

My obsession with (mostly red and pink) ribbon was mentioned here.

Since then, I made the Water Lily Top with Needful Capri. My math was horribly off because instead of 6 skeins, I only used 3.5 skeins!... which means I have 2.5 skeins left in the stash.
And so, I decided to look for scarf patterns that were suitable for ribbon yarn to stashbust! A pattern that didn't require a lot of yardage and a stitch pattern that showed off the ribbon texture. I previously made
drop stitch scarves with Berroco Zen but they kept streeeeeeetching when I wore them, to the point they became very skinny and very looooong.

This time, I decided to make clapotis scarves. This project is perfect for knitting on the TTC in the summer. I already finished making one ribbon clapotis (yellow) using Berocco Zen Colors ribbon yarn and already on the 2nd one (pink).
