The question was innocent enough: “What’s everyone knitting for Rhinebeck?” Knitting? For Rhinebeck? Of course—why did I think of that? It’s a fiber festival, after all. But what to knit, especially for an outdoor festival in the northeast in mid-October, when temperatures can range from the 30s to the 80s…sometimes all in the same day?

After some thought, some swatching, and a lot of trial and error, I came up with a capelet, hat, and wrister set that should serve me in cool afternoons at the fairgrounds or cold nights out with the girls.

This pattern includes just the capelet pattern (an eBook for all 3 patterns is in the works). For the hat pattern or the wristers pattern, please see their respective pattern pages.
