Like all Knittique's Scraplet Skeins designs, these capelets give you a perfect opportunity to use up leftover bits of yarn; Version 1 of this pattern needs the most (about 200 yds.), but the shoulder strap on Version 3 only needs about 75 yds. or so. Have fun with your coordinating yarns-- maybe use a completely contrasting color! Play!

What you will need

  • Each version uses 1 120-yd. Scraplet Skein plus coordinating yarns; the following lists are materials needed for each version in addition to the Scraplet Skein. All versions use a weaving needle for sewing. Version 1 needs about 200 yds. of heavy worsted-weight yarn (sample uses 2 balls of Classic Elite's "Waterlily")
  • plus 1 large button; it's worked on U.S. 15 and 9 needles (24" circular needle recommended for body). Version 2 needs about 100 yds. of bulky yarn; the sample was made with a hand-spun wool/mohair blend boucle. You'll need a U.S. 15 24" circular needle
  • U.S. 11 needles (for "scarf")
  • and 3 decorative buttons (optional). Version 3 requires just a small amount
  • about 75 yds or so
  • of bulky yarn for the shoulder strap (sample used 3 strands of sport-weight yarn held together). It's knitted on U.S. 15 24" circular needle
  • and U.S. 11 for the strap.
