Light Shade of Gray is a seamless capelet worked in DK yarn.

Light Shade of Gray is worked from bottom to top. First you knit border in Garter Stitch, join it in the front sewing nice buttons and then you pick up stitches from its top edge and continue upwards in Stockinette Stitch. At the end you make a collar in Garter Stitch again.
Ah, buttons! Don’t forget to show them off! They add those final touches to the capelet and make it one of a kind :-)
