Inspired from a pattern in an early 1900's stitch dictionary, what was originally intended to be a dainty border worked on minuscule needles and crochet thread turns into a big fashion statement when worked with chunky yarn on large needles. Go bold and stay warm in style! This capelet is worked from side to side in a semicircle; it is shaped through the use of short rows. If you have never worked short rows before, don't be intimidated! All you need to do is work partially across a row, then turn the work where indicated and begin working the next row. Stitch counts are given are given at the end of each row to let you know how many stitches should be left unworked. 4-page PDF includes row-by-row instructions for each section of the capelet. Huge thanks to Emily Brewer of for the amazing photos! Note - yarn is held doubled throughout.
