anthropologie-inspired capelet

a quick fix and highly recommended free pattern from peony knits blog. (thank you peony knits)


5 balls rowan holiday in shale

1 hank of louisa harding thalia in #1 (above)

*a quick note about rowan holiday yarn- i choose it because i was looking for something that would work as a substitute that would be comfortable in the texas heat- it is a loose cotton gauze yarn that knits to the same gauge as the pattern.

my mods:

-added true raglan sleeve shaping

-lengthened by 3 inches in length & 1 inch to the width for a looser fit.

-ended last row (and c/o) of sleeves and body with thalia and added a single crocheted boarder on front sides for contrast.
