Pattern description from Interweave Knits, Spring 2005: “Capelets are the latest fashion accessory. In addition to being fun and quick to knit, they are remarkably versatile - they keep shoulders warm without restricting arms and hands. Each of these three variations on the capelet theme - two pullovers and a cardigan - is knitted as a single piece from the lower edge to the neck. Ann Budd’s template pattern gives basic instructions in three sizes (child, woman’s small/medium, woman’s large) and five gauges, so that you can make a capelet in almost any size and yarn you choose.”

Finished Size: About 20 (21½, 24)“ (51 54.5, 61 cm) circumference at neck, 48 (54, 60)” (122 137, 152.5 cm) circumference at base, and 13¼ (15¼, 17¼)“ (33.5 38.5, 44 cm) long.


  • Your choice of yarn (see Notes below for amounts).
  • GGH Via Mala (100% wool; 73 yd 67 m/50 g): #8 chartreuse, 5 (6, 7) balls. Yarn distributed by Muench Yarns.


  • 24” and 16” (60-cm and 40-cm) circular (cir) needle in size needed for desired gauge. Note: 16” (40-cm) cir not required for cardigan version.
  • Size 11 (8 mm): 24” and 16” (60-cm and 40-cm) circular (cir).
  • Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

  • To use the charts, you need to choose yarn, determine your gauge, and pick a size. Gauge (in stitches per inch) runs vertically along the left side of the chart (in shaded boxes); finished circumference is listed horizontally at the beginning of the chart.
  • Capelets shown in magazine were knitted with Muench Yarns: GGH Samoa (#81 peach at 4 sts/inch), GGH Via Mala (#8 chartreuse at 3 sts/inch), and GGH Relax (#28 burgundy at 3 sts/inch).
  • The stitch counts for the smallest and largest sizes are modified to accommodate the 4-stitch rib pattern.
