A great little capelet to knit when you have just a bit less than a sweater’s worth of yarn on hand. I wanted to create something that felt classic, but depending on color and styling could be a great statement piece!

Worked top down, with a cozy loose turtleneck, the focus of the capelet is a large, flowy cable down the center of the front and back. Surrounding the cable are different weights of ribbing which keep the knitting interesting and help to accent the shaping and lines of the piece.

The length of this capelet, as written, is shorter, to make sure your waist shows below. However, it’s easy to modify this for length or width if desired, and notes are in the pattern.

Note that the original yarn from the Plucky Knitter was discontinued, but this has been knit in a variety of Worsted Weight yarns, and many of the projects can be seen on Ravelry!
