Pattern Description from Scarf Style: “Not exactly a scarf and not quite a shawl, this easy-to-make capelet slips over the head to keep your neck and shoulders warm. Worked in a slightly fuzzy nylon/wool blend, the capelet drapes and moves gracefully. A high, fitted neck and deep ruffle give it a slight Victorian feel, as do the separate ‘sleeves’ that fit easily over the arms and end at the finger line.”

Finished Size:

  • Capelet: 44” (12 cm) circumference just above ruffle and 14¼“ (36 cm) long from bottom edge of ruffle to top of shoulders with bottom edge unrolled.
  • Sleeves: 9” (23 cm) circumference at upper edge, 8” (20.5 cm) circumference at wrist, and 19” (48.5 cm) long.

Yarn: Berroco Furz (50% Nylon, 25% wool, 25% acrylic; 90 yd (83m)/ 50 g): #3877 teal, 6 balls for capelet, 2 balls for sleeves.
