In Roman mythology, harmony is represented by the goddess Concordia. She is often depicted wearing a cloak and holding a cornucopia, a symbol of abundance. Inspired by the harmony created when natural fibers from different continents are blended together, this capelet features a luxurious cabled neckline and a simple, yet graceful transition between colors at the yoke. Concordia settles around your shoulders like a warm hug on cool days or chilly nights. Choose two yarns with high contrast and enjoy working a bit of stranded colorwork and a few cables as you knit to create elegance and harmony. The cabled opening can be positioned at the center of the garment or to the side for a fetching look favored by goddesses.

To determine which size Concordia to knit, take your “hug” measurement—with your arms at your sides, measure your circumference just above your elbows. Compare this measurement to the Finished Measurements in the bar on the left. The split in the capelet allows for ease of movement. You can create a size Medium by beginning with size Small directions, then shifting to size Large directions when you reach Round 31 of the yoke section.
