A lovely, lacy capelet that is perfect for adding an extra layer of warmth and beauty to your winter attire. This piece is extremely versatile and can be worn over or under a winter coat, or worn inside as an easy to remove layer when it gets a little too warm by the fireplace. Two large buttons keep the capelet closed. The delicate, meandering lace in a bulky yarn is a wonderful contrast and makes for a beautiful and fast knit.

This pattern is worked from side to side, or buttonband to buttonband, all in one piece. The only finishing needed is blocking, attaching the buttons and weaving in the ends! The collar is worked in garter stitch and tucked once per body lace repeat, to provide shaping for the neck and shoulders. Both charted and written instructions are included for the lace on the body and the edging.

XS (S, M, L, XL) to fit a shoulder to shoulder (across upper back) measurement of up to 16/40 (19/48, 21/53, 23/59, 25/63) inches/cm (samples shown in S), if you are between sizes, choose the next size up.
