The Capelet has a little sibling: the Necco Cowl! Buy both of my Necco patterns, and get half off the second one -- no coupon code needed!

More than a cowl, but not quite a poncho, this capelet hugs the shoulders and drapes gracefully around the neck. Colorful dots and lines call to mind Necco’s candy button strips, a favorite of my childhood. This design brings out the best in a high-contrast skein of hand-dyed yarn.

Necco is worked in the round. Turned hems feature the contrast color on the inside lining.

MC: 480 - 530 yards
CC: 140 - 160 yards

Worked primarily on the larger needle; the smaller needle is used only for the hem facings.
