Capelet, Hat, Scarf and Wristlets Set - Capelet Pattern

Lion Brand® Fun Fur® - Lion® Bouclé


10 sts + 18 rows = 4 inches [10 cm] with B over St st (k every round). 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


The Capelet trim and the entire Hat, Scarf, and Wristlets are worked holding 2 strands together throughout.


Holding 2 ends of A tog, cast on 130 (140, 150, 160) sts. Being careful not to twist, place marker, join, and knit 1 rnd.
