This semi-circular shawlette is worked from the top down. With a wide cast-on edge and curved shape, Capriole hugs the shoulders for easy wearing. The simple, bold lace pattern allows variegated yarn to shine; Capriole is equally beautiful in solid or semi-solid colorways.

Capriole is part of the Airs Above the Ground Collection. Each of four shawlettes in the collection can be made with a single skein of fingering-weight yarn. Look for “Mezair” (lace border worked sideways, crescent-shaped, short-row body), “Courbette” (sideways, modular, crescent-shaped, lace), and “Levade” (bottom-up, heart-shaped, lace).
