Knit Classy Capelet

Lion Brand® Fun Fur®


12 sts + 16 rows = 4" [10 cm] in St st (k every round) with 1 strand each of A and B held tog. BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


Capelet is worked in the round with 1 strand each of A and B held together throughout.


With 1 strand each of A and B held tog, cast on 170 sts. Join, being careful not to twist. Place marker for beginning of round.
Rounds 1 and 3: Knit.
Rounds 2 and 4: Purl. Knit every round until piece measures 2" [5 cm] from beg.
Dec Round 1: *K 15, k2tog; repeat from * around – 160 sts. Knit every round until piece measures 11" [28 cm] from beg.
Dec Round 2: K 1, *k 1, k2tog; repeat from * around – 107 sts. Knit every round until piece measures 131⁄2"[34.5 cm] from beg.
