Crochet Pattern: Open CapeletBy Candace – 5 Comments
|This capelet is light and airy, but it’s also surprisingly warm. It uses tall stitches, so it’s quick to work up and very open. The cape has a very loose drape but can be blocked or starched for a more crisp fabric.
Close it up with ties or a pin or leave it open for a more casual look.
Finished Size: 22″ (56 cm) at the neck, 85.5″ (217 cm) at the bottom, 18″ (45.5 cm) length

8 dtr and 2 rows = 4″ (10 cm) long by 3″ (7.5 cm) high
