Basic Skills Necessary:
I was inspired for this capelet by two dominant trends for this winter, turtle-neck and gray to make this capelet which will keep your neck and shoulders warm in the first chilly days of autumn.
Since brioche stitch is voluminous by itself, I chose a fine yarn in alpaca and merino wool, which will not add bulkiness to your knit, but will keep you warm and cosy.
