Star Crossed Capelet

This is an elegant (and warm) version of a classic look. Wear it low on your shoulders with something strappy, or drawn slightly higher and paired with a sleek turtleneck. If you’re daring, try it as a drawstring miniskirt matched with bold tights and boots.

You will need:

  • 2 skeins (140g each) of Bernat Soft Bouclé Yarn (I used the “Tropical Spray” color)
  • G/6 hook (4.25mm)
  • 3 yards of a satin ribbon in a coordinating colour (1/2 inch wide)


Sizes:Pattern is for size M (S, L)

Gauge: 12dc and 8 rows = 4” x 4” (10cm x 10cm)

Notes:

US pattern notations used

st = stitch
ch = chain
sl st = slip stitch
dc = double crochet
fpdc = front post treble crochet
bpdc = back post treble crochet

In this pattern, the cross stitch (which appears as a row of Xs) is made using this technique: fptc around second st from hook, fptc in the skipped st.

Ch 3 at the beginning of a round will count as the first dc.
