This lace capelet features a classic lace stitch which is surprisingly easy to knit and forms its own scalloped edge at the cast on edge – but be sure to use a stretchy cast on method to allow this to happen. The capelet is worked in one piece decreasing in circumference gradually to the saddle shoulders. These are fairly gently shaped and so choose your size according to how you would like the garment to sit – a smaller size if you just want it to cover your shoulders, in which case you may wish to use a lovely pin to keep it in place, or a larger size if you would like more fabric to wrap yourself in for those chillier summer evenings.
