Lianka Azulay, born in Brazil, picked up her first crochet hook at age 7, and hasn't put it down since. She specializes in the research and use of unique stitch patterns in her designs to bring fashionable and contemporary style to crocheted pieces. Her first collection of patterns, "Crocodile Stitch Fashions," was published by Annie's Attic and quickly became the #1 best-seller in the publisher's catalog. The huge success of her pattern collection touched off a trend, and the Crocodile Stitch became one of the hottest crochet techniques in crochet today.

This patterns includes a revolutionary new ruffle technique. In most layered ruffle patterns, you must first crochet a flat piece to serve as base for the ruffles, and then crochet the ruffles row by row on top of this base. This requires multiple fastening off, which is tediouos and time-consuming.
The technique used in this capelet avoids this hassle--you will work the ruffles all along without needing extra finishing work (such as tedious weaving in of countless loose ends!)

Size J crochet hook (6.00 mm)
