Using 1 x 1 ribbing and several variations of slipped garter rib, this short capelet conforms to your shape and keeps your shoulders warm without restricting your arms. The reverse side is attractive as well, so it can be worn with either side out. Knit seamlessly from the top down, you can try it on as you go to determine your ideal length. (Keep in mind that knitting to a different length than what is given will affect the yardage required.) The neck can be made as a turtleneck or split collar.

• Slipped stitches
• Increasing

Measurements:
• S-M - to fit up to 41” bust
• M-L - to fit up to 53” bust
