Pattern Description from Vogue Knitting, Holiday 2009: “A drapey dolman capelet by Coralie Meslin, temptingly touchable in Berroco’s ‘Ultra Alpaca,’ stars an allover trinity stitch. The two front pieces are knit separately, joined and worked together to make the back. I-cord slips through eyelets and ties to form soft gathers.”

“Loose fitting capelet made in two front pieces, which are then joined and worked together to make back piece.”
