Chevron Capelet Downloadable PDF Knitting Pattern
NEW! The Chevron Capelets pattern, includes instructions for 3 versions. Version 1, pictured here in Cafe Creme, features ruffled trim at lower edge, and wider contrast neckband with picot bind-off.
Version 2 (shown in Zap!, with the turtleneck) omits the ruffled trim and picot bind-off, and has a closer-fitting neckband.
Version 3, which is essentially Version 2 with a split collar, is shown here made with 1 L On Wheels Scraplet Skein; it also uses about 100 yds. of heavy worsted-weight yarn for the collar. (I combined strands of lighter-weight yarns for mine-- great use of leftovers!)
All versions are knit in the round with 2 needle sizes.
