Victorian Capelete

from CityStyle Crochet
(4) Name: 'Crocheting : Victorian Capelete
Victorian Capelete

Pattern Description:

Inspired by those little fichus worn by modest Victorian-era women, this feminine crochet capelette, or shoulderette, makes a perfect accessory for that special wedding or prom day or wear it more casually to dress up you T-shirts and jeans.

PATTERN DETAILS: Lacy crochet shells form the body of the capelette. Shells with picot stitches form the edging. A 6-petal, multilayer rose (instructions included) closes the capelette, or wear the rose separately as a brooch or use it as an embellishment for your hats, scarves and handbags. A self-tie with dainty flower blossom ends completes the look. Or, for a different effect, omit the tie and weave in ribbon to match your prom dress or wedding/bridal/bridesmaid gown. This versatile pattern offers many options.

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS: approx. 24" (61 cm) at neck edge; 40-1/2" (103 cm) at bottom edge; 7-1/2" (19 cm) length

SKILL LEVEL: With its simple shaping and basic stitches, I would rate this pattern as EASY.

MATERIALS: The featured yarn is Knit Picks(r) Bare Stroll Sport Yarn, which is an undyed blend of 75% merino wool, 25% nylon and has a crochet gauge of 16 - 20 sc = 4" (10 cm) when using a size E thru 7 (3.5 mm - 4.5 mm) hook. You will need one 274 yard (250.5 m) hank.
