Capelet

Lion Brand® Fun Fur® - Vanna's Choice®

GAUGE:

16 stitches = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter stitch (knit every row) with 3 strands of A held together.

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
With 3 strands of A held together, cast on 39 stitches. Work in Garter stitch (knit every row) until piece measures 31 (45) in. (79 (114.5) cm) from beginning. Bind off.

FINISHING
Sew short ends together.
Edging
From right side with crochet hook, join 1 strand of B with a slip stitch in one corner of Capelet.
Row 1 Working in ends of rows along long edge of Capelet; single crochet in same space as join, *(triple crochet, chain 1) 5 times in same space, triple crochet in same space (fan made), skip ends of next 2 rows; repeat from * around, skipping more or fewer row ends to end evenly and working a fan in opposite corner. Fasten off.
Repeat edging on other long edge of Capelet.
Weave in ends.

Capelet Reviewed by Betty Hughes on 2013-01-29 *****
I made this out of Black and White. It is easy and beautiful. The ladies at the dance almost took it off of me because they wanted one. I have worn it over a black suit as well as an evening wrap. I am looking for another easy pattern to make during evening movies. Any suggestions?????????? I have lots of this yarn.
