This is the “The Galaxy Capelet” pattern updated, to add stars (beads) and to make the pattern available directly through Ravelry sales as a PDF.

If you have previously purchased The Galaxy Capelet pattern, the beading instructions can be found for free on my website My website instructions also include a link to Cat Bordhi’s “How to place beads in knitting” video.

The black beaded version of the capelet was knit in an unidentified brand of DK weight boucle spun cashmere yarn. Washed gauge= 24st/32r = 4”.

I have had knitters comment that the neck opening measurements appear to be smaller than pictured. The Milky Whey yarn will wet block to a larger gauge (24sts/in) than your knitting gauge. If substituting yarns you want to be very careful to cast on loosely so that you get the desired size of the neck opening.
