Skill Level:

medium skill level requirement Intermediate

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Techniques Used: Long-tail cast on, knit/purl, increasing/decreasing, beading (crochet hook method), easy lace, short rows, grafting, I-cord, pompoms.
  • Experience Level: Intermediate; lace edging is both written and charted.

Pattern Description:

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.

  • Size: S (L); 8 (12)" from neck to bottom of scalloped edge; 58 (74)" bottom edge circumference.


  • Yarn: Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light (100% merino wool, 440 yards), 2 (3) skeins. Size S shown in Alizarin.
