Stranded colorwork, using two colors in any given row, puts the geometric design front and center on this delightfully warm capelet. The working color is pulled up in the right spot to match the pattern, with the unused color carried across the back. Follow the chart and you’ll get the hang of this interesting technique in no time.

Larger hook is a Tunisian hook with a flexible plastic extension; smaller hook is a regular crochet hook.

All sizes will need 2 skeins of Buttermilk, 1 skein Sailor Blue, 1 skein Winter Sky, 1 skein Cobweb.
