Lace Capelet

I had some questions about what cowl I’m wearing in these pictures.

It’s actually not a cowl pattern, but a capelet.  See, the directions call for you to cast on VERY loosely but it turns out that you need to cast on even more loosely than VERY loosely because the caplet won’t fit down over my shoulders!  Instead of frogging it, I wear it like a cowl.  It’s a free pattern on raverly called Lace Capelet. It’s a really easy pattern. The toughest part is working with such a fine yarn on larger needles, while trying not to lose any stitches.  I used Thaki S. Charles Luna yarn. The pattern called for 2 skeins but I only needed one full skein.

It’s a nice one to have in the closet to grab and throw on. It feels so soft and it’s surprisingly warm for how lightweight it is. I wear it all year. In the winter it looks like sparkling snow and in the summer it’s a nice lightweight cover-up to wear in the evenings.

  1. Maybe just the fact it was knit at the Cape makes you love it that much more??!! It really is a very pretty cowl/caplet. And I remember how upset you were when it didn’t work as a caplet but it is beautiful as a cowl!
