A great little capelet to knit when you have just a bit less than a sweater’s worth of yarn on hand.

Worked top down, with a cozy loose turtleneck, the focus of the capelet is a flowy cable down the center of the front and back, keeping the line vertical and drawing the eye inwards. 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 is shorter, to make sure your waist shows below, and it’s easy to modify for your taste if you want.
