“This adorable hooded capelet is reminiscent of daydreams of days long past, yet modern enough to wear with almost any outfit, from cute vintage dresses to little black jeans and big stompy boots. Decorative eyelet decreases adorn the shoulder shaping which keeps it in place nicely on your shoulders even when worn untied. The sturdy, linear nature of the gull lace stitch and garter stitch borders give it a folksy yet urbane feel. It is a quick, fun knit that is neither too clunky nor too fussy. Wear it on your next stroll through the woods!”

Knit in worsted weight wool. Skills required: Increasing/decreasing, basic lace patterning, 3-needle bind off or kitchener stitch, optional i-cord. The pattern will be e-mailed as a PDF upon purchase.
