A quick, but stunning project for super bulky yarn. Large leaves lay across your shoulders and back on this crescent shaped shawlette/capelet. A crochet chain with toggles attached at each end allows you to customize the fit around your shoulders. Such an impressive piece for so little work, you'll want to make some for your friends and family too!
Ovate is worked from the neck down. Increases are worked at the edges and within the pattern to create the curved shape. The toggle cord is a crochet chain, with the toggles attached to each end. No buttonholes are needed, due to the large stitches. Both written and charted instructions are included.
A big thanks to my tech editor, Kate Vanover, and my great test knitters.
Gauge is not crucial to this project; but if your gauge varies from that which is given, you may need an additional skein of yarn.
6 sts and 8 rows = 4 inches/10 cm in stockinette stitch.

I love soap and candle making, all sorts of paper crafts and a bit of jewelery making...but my true love is knitting. I learned to knit in 2007 and started designing in 2010. I am always sketching up all the little ideas that pop into my head...and translating them into knitted garments, accessories and patterns!
When I am not knitting, you can find me indulging in my other hobby - running. I coach beginner marathoners, work part-time in a specialty running store and just plain enjoy running. I suppose it helps to make up for all that time I am sitting completely still whilst knitting!
