Hand Crocheted Wool and Silk Capelet - Fireside



This beautiful little capelet, shoulder warmer, collar, mini-shawl is hand crocheted using a gorgous high luster, ultra-soft hand-dyed wool and silk singles yarn. It fastens with a wooden button and can be fastened in a variety of different places along the capelet to fit many different sizes.
The capelet is 9 inches from the neckline to the tip of the scalloped edges. It would be gorgeous worn over a turtleneck shirt or sweater or use as a little shawl over that little black dress. The colors are gorgeous - golds, burgundy, bronze, orange, rust and brown. It would be beautiful worn with cream, gold, burgundy, deep forest green, rust, brown, black or gray.

Dry clean or hand wash in cool water, lay flat to dry. Do not twist or wring.

This is just beautiful. I am learning how to crochet but nothing like this! I hope I can do something like this one day!

Thank you! I have crocheted for a lot more years than I have knitted. I found a pattern for a shawl that I liked but there were things about it that I didn't care for so I improvised and modified as I went along - and this little capelet is the result. I doubt that I could replicate it if I wanted to! But I'm going to make another one some time. Might even use some of my cotton and bamboo yarns to make it more of a spring/summer capelet/shawl/wrap. So much fiber...so little time!
