Fluorite – Tunisian crochet capelet pattern


A Tunisian crochet capelet pattern with eyelets and a lacy edging.


About the pattern

Use this Tunisian crochet capelet pattern to make an elegant accessory for yourself or a loved one who needs warm shoulders, using this detailed and adaptable pattern.

Use it for a chilly spring or autumn wedding, worked up in luxurious alpaca, or make a hard-wearing capelet out of rough wool to keep you warm on your forest adventures.

The shape of this capelet makes it sit nicely around your neck, draped over your shoulders. You can add a loop and button at the neck for extra stability.

The overall design of the capelet creates the illusion of an hourglass shape, emphasizing the waist, which is a staple of historical or historical-inspired clothing.

If you like to history-bound, this is an item that you might rely on more often than you’d expect.

You can add more pattern repeats for a wider capelet, or work more rows in pattern to get a longer cape.

Skill level

Experienced beginner or intermediate, due to increases, twisted stitches and eyelets.
