Celebrate your personal sense of style with this eye-catching capelette! Eyelets and seed stitch are worked side-to-side with short row shaping for a pattern that’s easy to work and striking to wear. Knit in a sumptuous fingering-weight blend of merino, cashmere, and silk, this capelette gives you a chance to play with color for dramatic or subtle effect. I-cord loops and closures offer another chance to make this a capelette that’s one-of-a-kind, just like you.
