Knit-Crochet Capelet

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Creating this pattern with only pictures of ponchos to use as a start. Turned out much nicer than I expected. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I started in knit from the bottom up using circular needles - decreasing stitches to shape shoulders and then neck line. I crocheted the boarder all around and added button holes. The finishing touch was a crocheted faux fur trim, which gave it a prettier finished look. I then sewed on the wood buttons matching button holes.

What you will need

  • Lion Brand Home Spun yarn + faux fur yarn for trim. Circular knit needles - crochet hook for boarder. Wood buttons in front closing.
