This lovely caplet slips over the shoulders for a carefree wrap that adds interest and intrigue when one tries to figure out how the front plait was completed! Plaiting or twisting knitted ladders, interlacing them, which are then grafted to the opposite side results in a cascading plait down the front of the caplet.

Finished Size: 14” in height and 40” circumference

Size Notes: To determine the proper size, measure the entire circumference of the upper body, about three inches from the shoulder, including the arms. The Gardenia Caplet is made in two sections, each being 50% of this total measurement.

Notions: 4 Stitch Markers, Tapestry needle, several stitch holders
