A garter stitch hooded capelet with an elaborate beaded and scalloped lower edge, the Escallop Capelet is knit from the bottom up beginning with the beaded edging, then shaped to hug the shoulders with decorative raglan decreases. A shallow hood frames the face, and features a pointed top shaped with short rows and grafted; pompom I-cord ties complete the whimsy. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Techniques & Skills Used: longtail CO, knit/purl, increasing/decreasing, easy lace, beading (crochet hook method), short rows, grafting, I-cord, pompoms; edging instructions are both written and charted. GAUGE Gauge: 20 st and 40 rows/4" in garter st, after blocking. Gauge is not critical for this project; however, a different gauge may result in a smaller or larger finished capelet and different yardage requirements. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Size: S/M (M/L); 8 (12)" from neck to bottom of scalloped edge; 58 (74)" lower edge circumference.
