Pattern Information

Quoted from the magazine “The inspiration for this capelet-with-scarf came from a romantic Russian-looking garment that might have been worn in the movie Dr. Zhivago. To keep the romance and downplay the costume element, Véronik drew on the shaping and feel of 1950s designs. In deciding where to end the cape, she stopped just shy of the waist -- to show it off of course. The cape is knitted in one piece -- from the top down -- like a giant yoke. Although the increases are worked with simple yarnovers, the texture of the chenille yarn hides the resulting eyelets. The capelet can be worn with the opening in front, back, or on the side. You can order the buttons used here from Véronik’s favorite button shop in Monreal or seek out something vintage. The scarf is separate -- wear it or not.”
