In 1956 Doris Day won an Oscar for her performance of the
song Que Sera, Sera in Alfred Hitchcock’s The Man Who Knew Too Much. The wardrobe for her role as ‘Jo McKenna’ in this film was designed by the very talented and celebrated Edith Head; the Ambrose Chapel Capelet was inspired by one of her creations.

A reversible ribbed cable edges this capelet whose construction hugs the shoulders. The pattern stitch presents a pleasant face on both right and wrong side allowing for two completely different looks from this one pattern.

Construction Notes
This capelet begins with a provisionally cast on neck tab. The ribbed cable side edgings are knit on and are turned at the front corners to work a larger ribbed cable across the live stitches of the bottom of the capelet. The bottom edging meets at the centre back where the edging stitches are grafted using a double-sided grafting technique. Although not truly reversible, this pattern does present a lovely face on both sides.
