A lovely capelet to wear whenever you want to feel warm and stylish! The design looks like the tail of the peacock. It's fast and fun to knit and a head-turner to wear.
I love capelets like this one. They are like wearing a comfy sweater but looks elegant and interesting. The design highlights the shoulders which makes you look slim!
For the red capelet I used a 100g wool/slik/bamboo/sequined yarn and 6mm knitting needles. If you are interested I sell kits with this yarn!
For the mustard colourd capelet in the photos I have used: 3 balls of 3.5 oz/100g Alafoss Lopi (ca. 109 yd/ 100m). Weight: Bulky Circular knitting needles size 7 mm (16”/40cm and 31”/80 cm). Stitch marker Ribbon: ca 45”/115 cm organza ribbon. The ribbon can be replaced by any ribbon you like or you can knit an icord.
Try knitting it in mohair or thick cotton to get different looks!
I do mail paper copies of the pattern. Please contact me for postage & details.
