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.
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.
