Inspired by those little fichus worn by modest Victorian-era women, this feminine crochet capelette, or shoulderette, makes a perfect accessory for that special wedding or prom day or wear it more casually to dress up you T-shirts and jeans. PATTERN DETAILS: Lacy crochet shells form the body of the capelette. Shells with picot stitches form the edging. A 6-petal, multilayer rose (instructions included) closes the capelette, or wear the rose separately as a brooch or use it as an embellishment for your hats, scarves and handbags. A self-tie with dainty flower blossom ends completes the look. Or, for a different effect, omit the tie and weave in ribbon to match your prom dress or wedding/bridal/bridesmaid gown. This versatile pattern offers many options. FINISHED MEASUREMENTS: approx. 24" (61 cm) at neck edge; 40-1/2" (103 cm) at bottom edge; 7-1/2" (19 cm) length SKILL LEVEL: With its simple shaping and basic stitches, I would rate this pattern as EASY. MATERIALS: The featured yarn is Knit Picks(r) Bare Stroll Sport Yarn, which is an undyed blend of 75% merino wool, 25% nylon and has a crochet gauge of 16 - 20 sc = 4" (10 cm) when using a size E thru 7 (3.5 mm - 4.5 mm) hook. You will need one 274 yard (250.5 m) hank. You may also choose dyed Stroll Sport Yarn, which is put up in balls of 137 yards (125.3 m) - You will then need two balls. You will also need: -Crochet hook size size H/8 (5.0 mm) or size needed to obtain correct gauge. -Tapestry needle for working in yarn ends. -Purchased Pinback - 1" (2.54 cm).

Welcome to CityStyle Crochet, where I design original crochet patterns in my New York-based studio. Using skills developed over years of crocheting, I strive for a high quality presentation in each scarf, hat, cowl or shawl pattern I produce, and seek balance in color, texture and stitch detail. I love all kinds of yarns, and constantly experiment with yarns of different colorways, weights, blends and textures in an effort to select yarns that showcase the stitches being used, and that will create a piece that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. I love what I do, and my goal is to create sophisticated designs that are a treat for you to wear, and that you can confidently give as gifts. Enjoy your shopping here at CityStyle Crochet. I regularly add new patterns to my shop, so please check back often to see new additions!
