Steampunk inspired garter stitch hooded capelet with beaded scalloped edge. Escallop is knit from the bottom up beginning with the beaded edging, then shaped to hug the shoulders with decorative raglan decreases. A shallow hood frames the face, and is shaped with short rows and grafted at top. Pompom I-cord ties complete the whimsy.
Gauge: 20 st x 40 rows/4" in garter stitch; 1 scallop at bottom edge = 4", after blocking. Gauge is not critical for this project; however, a different gauge may result in a smaller or larger finished capelet and different yardage requirements.
Recovering attorney and emigree from Seventh Avenue, I like writing patterns almost as much as knitting them. Visit me at www.jenniferdassau.com
