About the pattern

This capelet was designed to keep your shoulders and back protected from the fierce summer sun during a Pride parade or to give you something light and airy to wear if you just want to feel whimsical and play with colors.

It can be made either in a long gradient or a single color. Blocking reveals the lace panels and the scalloped lacy edge.

The capelet is constructed from the neckline towards the lower edge, in repeating lace wedges separated by plain columns of stitches.

You can make fewer or more panels for a narrower or wider capelet.

The lace pattern is simple and intuitive, making for a relaxing and meditative crochet project.

Skill level – Intermediate. You will be making clusters, eyelets and increases.
