Pay What Works: Inspired by the models of other designers that I trust and respect, I’m now offering a “Pay What Works” model. I like this model because it accurately reflects the pride that I take in all of my designs and the effort that I put into them, while staying true to my heart: that knitting should be accessible to everyone, no matter what their current life situation.

I’m offering coupon codes to let you “choose your price” for this pattern. Each of these codes will adjust the cost of the pattern to the final cost listed below (the cost listed is what you pay, not the discount amount). Please choose a price that you feel represents my work, but that also allows you to take joy in knitting this pattern without stress or financial burden.

Kaiyo is a fun capelet/poncho that is worked completely in the round and features twisted rib, seed stitch, and lace!

Kaiyo was originally designed for the Yarnbox Classic December 2016 pattern.

Kaiyo is currently being re-worked to include shaping in the ribbing to help the capelet stay on the shoulders better, as well as including multiple sizes. Any purchased patterns will be updated to include the newest version when it releases!

(NOTE: This designer only had 15g of yarn remaining! If your gauge differs dramatically from mine, your yardage may vary.)

US 5 3.75mm 32” circular needle and US 7 4.5mm} 32” circular needle, or size to obtain gauge.

Errata: If you received a physical copy with Yarnbox or downloaded a copy from Ravelry before 12/20/2016: Switch to US 7, or larger needle, after you complete the last Row 3 (or once you are done with the twisted ribbing). The rest of Kaiyo will be finished with the US 7, or larger needle.
