This was an idea that just wouldn't leave my head from the moment I started looking at Wrap Style again. I simple but cozy capelet. The original plan was to make the cape long enough so that I had to make slits for where my hands would pop out but I decided to stop just above the elbow. That original sketch still lingers on my mind so you never know what could be coming next.
I had quite the educational time working on the pattern. I even ripped the whole thing out and started over. The CC color on the collar was originally a provisional cast on (at the time I was eager to get to the shaping and thought I'd complete the rest of the neck later) but after showing it to a few people they all loved that pop of color and I kept it in!
All in the creative process right? What I'm left with is a cute, cozy, shoulder warmer, with a collar that can be buttoned or pinned up to be a turtleneck should the chilly weather sneak up on me.
