Some of my Loot after Day 1, including a horde of buttons from Textile Garden. The reddish ones in the shadows are a PERFECT match for the Skein Queen DK

Released: Undone Capelet

I have released a new pattern! This is a pretty little capelet that only needs one skein of yarn (1 skein for sizes S & M; L needs 2). You can easily grow it if you have more yarn available. The capelet ties closed with a ribbon. The ribbon is woven through the collar with the clever use of one-row buttonholes. Here’s the ravelry link.

The capelet is pretty enough to wear to a wedding, but I have found myself wearing it whenever I just want something to throw over my shoulders. The colour is so punk it jazzes up my outfits without going too girly. The yarn is Uncommon Everyday in POW! by The Uncommon Thread.

Available to buy now for £3

If worked up in cotton to a longer length (800 yds 4-ply), it could also double as a beach skirt. I would also love to see how it turns out with a contrasting colour collar.

If you want to knit it up with a contrasting colour collar or as a beach skirt & can put pics on rav, drop me a line and I’ll send you a free copy.

Mwah!
