Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit and purl
  • increase and decrease
  • crochet chain

Pattern Description:

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.
