Library Capelet

August 2015

I purchased two skeins of this yarn at the Fremont County Fiber Arts Guild Fiber Fest in 2014 because I loved the color variation in the skein.

The DK weight yarn knit beautifully into a child-size capelet, and I love how the yarn striped.

Knitted Child's Capelet
August 2015
Pattern: Library Capelet (free pattern on Lion Brand website) or Ravelry link

Yarn: James C. Brett - Woodlander  (80% acrylic, 20% wool - shade L7)

Needles: size 9

Note: the pattern is written for Homespun yarn, which is considered a bulky weight. If knit with the specified weight of yarn and needle size called for in the pattern, this should an adult-sized capelet.

This capelet is going in the donation box along with a matching hat made from the yarn remnants.

  1. That is cute. I should make one for myself when I sew, it looks like something that would work or for when I sit in the evenings in the winter reading or watching TV. Are you on ravelry?

  4. That is so cute! My mother-in-law is always cold in church and something like that would be just perfect - in a much larger size of course. Once again I wish I could knit.

  6. I love the seed stitch edging! Any time I can knit seed stitch, I'm a happy knitter! The colors are beautiful. I especially like this style of cape (adult sized hee-hee). It is so nice around the shoulders on a cool fall evening.
