You could call it a capelet. Or a poncho. Or a cowl. It’s the perfect touch of warmth for all seasons. Scrunch it up around your neck when you put your coat on—slip it down over your shoulders when you get there. Or pleat the neck with a pretty pin. It knits up in an evening—and we know someone who’s made eight of them!


  • Small/Medium: Approx. 16”/41cm long when flat; fits up to 56”/142cm around shoulders (bust+arms). Photographed in small/medium.

  • Large/Extra Large: Approx. 18”/46cm long when flat; fits up to 60”/152cmaround shoulders (bust+arms).

Note: As this piece stretches to fit around your shoulders, it shortens in length. For broader shoulders, you may want to increase the length of the first section before decrease rounds; this may require more yarn.

Yardage given for Small/Medium; Large/Extra Large in parentheses ( ).

We’ve played with different yarns and colors, and we’ve put together our favorite combinations on our website. The Summer Tweed version has different colors of the same yarn shown in the main pattern (great for a light summer layer); the Cocoon version combines the heavier-weight Cocoon for some extra warmth.
