My New Capelet

That's what they call it.  I knitted it with a merino wool/silk blend yarn.  It's very soft.  After blocking all those mountains and valleys are gone.

 It's a very fun project.  Very easy to knit, but not boring.  And it went much faster than I thought it would.

 I like the border and how it is a collar around your neck.  This wrap is great for those cool evenings when you just need something around your shoulders.

This is one project I will do again in other colors and yarns.  I want to see what it's like in cotton and I also think lighter colors won't seem so old ladyish as this looks.  My husband called it old-fashioned.  He really likes the color though.


  1. It is beautiful and would look good in a slightly variegated yarn too.

  2. It's a lovely pattern. I think I'll add it to my queue!


I love hearing from you. Please feel free to leave a comment.
