In music, a capriccio is a fast and lively piece. The Capriccio Shawl offers the same fun and quick experience, with an easy two-row repeat for the body and a simple edging that ends the piece with a flourish.

The Capriccio Shawl calls for just one skein of fingering weight, though it can easily be adjusted to size, and it pairs amazingly with almost any colorway. The lace pattern is quick and beginner friendly, for a fun and lively project that’s a joy to hook up.

Yarn, Yardage, and Colors
The pattern is a one skein wonder and calls for just one skein of fingering weight yarn, though it can easily be adjusted to be made larger or smaller. The pattern works well with anything from a lace weight to a worsted, and pairs with any colorway, including variegated, speckles, and solids.

Size will vary based on gauge, yardage, and adjustments made. When worked as stated, shawl has a wingspan of 48”/122cm and measures 23”/58.5cm down the back. Size can be customized by working extra/fewer repeats.

Skills required
ch, dc, sc, working into ch-spaces

The shawl is worked in one piece from the top down. The border is added directly from the main shawl, without cutting the yarn.

The printer-friendly version has only one photo on the cover page, and less spacing so the pattern takes up fewer pages. For more details on what the printer-friendly version includes, see this page. If you are working from the printer-friendly version and are having trouble with a pattern, I strongly recommend checking the regular version. The text will be easier to read and it might have more detailed instructions.
