Sample pricing: Since this piece has been worn occasionally by models (including Lola the Mannequin), and tried on in yarn stores during trunk shows, we are offering this sample at a very special price— but remember that we only have one!
The Birthstone Capelet in Aquamarine: This stunning Anna Karenina-esque capelet is made with Knittique's Scraplet Skeins in Aquamarine, from the Birthstones collection; this is emphasized by the beautiful "jeweled" button trim just above the slit. The capelet can be worn with the slit positioned over one shoulder; my favorite is to wear the slit slightly off-center, as shown here.
The capelet is trimmed at the neck with 100% wool, ribbed for warmth and stretchiness; this wool is slightly variegated.
Size: One size fits most; the Aquamarine Capelet measures approximately 14" long (from top of neckband to longest point) and 54" around the lower edge. It will reach below the bustline of most women.
Materials: There are more than 20 different yarns in this capelet, including wool, mohair, silk, alpaca, cotton, angora, rayon/viscose, bamboo, nylon, acrylic, and polyester.
Care: Occasional hand-washing is good for these high-quality fibers; simply soak in cool water with a gentle detergent (or any of the products made specifically for hand-knitted pieces), rinse gently in cool water, squeeze out as much water as possible without wringing, and lay flat to dry. Shake to fluff a little when it's dry.
Get this pattern: If you'd like to make your own Loop Scarf/Capelet, the pattern is now available! (To make the style shown here, you'll need 1 Scraplet Skein plus 1 Stranded Skein; see pattern for more information.) And although the Sunbreaks Scraplet Skeins colorway shown here is sold out (sorry about that), there are plenty of beautiful colors available in the Knittique section.
