Originally featured in Berroco Portfolio 2, the Addilyn Capelet is worked in one piece from the neck down and features a garter drop stitch pattern and an asymmetrical, buttoned cowl neck where the elongated stitches (formed from the drop stitch pattern) serve as the buttonholes.
You can wear it over your shoulders like a capelet or you can wear it drapped over your neck as a cowl!

Picking Your Size:
If you want to wear your Addilyn like a capelet, pick a size based on the “To Fit Bust Sizes” measurements. If you’de prefer to only wear it like an oversized cowl, then choose size 1 regardless of your bust size (since you won’t require it to fit around your chest).
