Chunky Cabled Capelet
The Chunky Cabled Capelet is an exclusive design inside Issue #30 (September 2016) of Happily Hooked Magazine - an issue which features some gorgeous garments, accessories and home decor all inspired by a Rustic Autumn.
This design was only my second project worked with cables, my first being the Cable Twist Hat that I shared with back in April. Up until I tried this hat, I was super intimidated by crochet cables. If you are like I was - don’t be! It is so easy to work, and create an amazing look and texture. I knew once I completed my Cable Twist Hat that I wanted to design a cabled capelet and so I set out to do so!
Other inspiration includes the Cowl Shoulder Cozy I completed back in January. This design was by Salena Baca for Red Heart Yarns, and I was in love with the design and how wonderful it was to wear around. Thanks for the inspiration Salena!
To complete this capelet, you will need 5 to 7 skeins of Deborah Norville’s Serenity Chunky Yarn - I used the Oatmeal colorway - or 324 to 327 yards of Bulky #5 Yarn, and an L8/11mm crochet hook. Sizing is included for Small/Medium and Large/Extra Large sizes.
I worked the Small/Medium size up in about 3 hours and 45 minutes.
