Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knitting flat
  • knitting with beads

Pattern Description:

Nothing says Tuscany like easy elegance with an artistic flair. Knit flat from the bottom up, this graceful capelet is composed of panels of vertical diamonds separated by seed stitch. Fingering weight yarn lends fluidity to these gently curved "petals" and the yarn is held double for stability at the neckband, knit separately. Choose between a beaded version with serious sparkle or an unadorned version where the texture speaks for itself. Accessible directions make it easy to create your own personal masterpiece.
