Two things inspired the designing of this capelet: I worked the Cowl Shoulder Cozy back in January (2016). This design was by Salena Baca for Red Heart Yarns, and I was in love with the design and how wonderful it was to wear around. This design was only my second project worked with cables, my first being the Cable Twist Hat that I shared back in April (2016). Up until I tried this hat, I was super intimidated by crochet cables. If you are like I was - don’t be! It is so easy to work, and create an amazing look and texture. I knew once I completed my Cable Twist Hat that I wanted to design a cabled capelet and so I set out to do so! Upon completion of my design, I found a submission call for the Happily Hooked Magazine to the theme of Rustic Autumn and so I sent it in, and it was chosen! Originally I worked my design in a redish-pinkish colorway since that is what I had on hand, but then worked this Oatmeal colorway after chosen. Lighter and solid colors will show the cable design the best (and are easier to photograph). This being said, you can find this design in the Happily Hooked Magazine for the Rustic Autumn, Issue #30, which features some gorgeous garments, accessories and home decor. Materials: - 545 - 763 yards of Chunky/Bulky Weight Yarn - I used five skeins each of Deborah Norville’s Serenity Chunky Yarn in the Oatmeal colorway. The L/XL size will require 7 skeins. - L11/8mm Crochet Hook - #18 Tapestry Needle for Weaving in Ends Material Notes: Yarn Alternatives: Red Heart’s Medley Yarn, Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Chunky Yarn, Michaels Loops & Threads Charisma Yarn, Paton’s Classic Wool Bulky Time Spent: I worked on this piece for several days, a little bit at a time. It took me about 3 hours, 45 minutes to work up the S/M size.
