This little capelet is so quick to knit that there’s plenty of time to make several before Christmas. I began this one at 3:30 yesterday afternoon, and finished it this morning. I did NOT stay up late, either. Find 3 to 6 skeins of a chunky handspun yarn in at least three different colorways. ( My yarn averages 40 yards per skein and I used six colorways – 6 skeins.) Use a 32″ circular size 15 or 17 needle – you will not knit in the round, but the circular helps distribute the weight.
The capelet is knit side to side on 30 sts. The pattern is as follows:
*Knit two rows.
Knit 10 sts, wrap & turn, knit back on the 10 sts.
Knit 20 sts, wrap & turn, knit back on the 20 sts.
Knit 4 rows. *
Repeat * to * until the capelet fits perfectly, Bind off. Seam the cast-on edge to the bound-off edgeor lace a beautiful ribbon to join the beginning to the end.
We have loads of gorgeous handspun and would be happy to put together a custom combination for you. If you use a larger needle or looser stitch, this project can be made with as few as three skeins.
