Scarves and Cowls
Knits definitely aren’t just for the winter months. This delicate capelet, knitted in a luxurious feather-light mohair with sparkly sequins, is the perfect accessory for spring and summer evenings, when the heat of the day fades just a little. The capelet is knitted as a simple rectangle—so there’s no fancy shaping—and the satin ribbon is simply threaded through the lacy holes along one edge.

Gauge (tension)
20 sts and 26 rows in stockinette (stocking) stitch to a 4-in (10-cm) square on US 9 (5.5mm) needles.

The finished capelet is 48½in (123cm) (ungathered) across and 10½in (27cm) long, excluding the scalloped edging.
