What are you most proud of? I love that it's worked sideways in one piece, requires no seaming, and is a very easy introduction to short-row shaping. I'm running a giveaway for the yarn, pattern, and needles to work this capelet, as well as a lovely project bag and some point protectors. Visit my blog by midnight Central US time on November 25th for your chance to win!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Get a highlighter to keep track of your rows! You don't want to lose your spot. Also, if you have never done short rows before, you might try to overthink the pattern, but just go with it! I promise it all works out in the end. :)
