Girls Crocheted Capelet, Take Two

29 Nov

Girls Capelet

Look familiar?  It should.  I worked up this exact pattern a few weeks ago in a different yarn and with a larger gauged hook.  I made the original one for my niece as a Christmas gift, but after looking at it for a few days I changed my mind.  It was a little too large for her and my daughter, who is about to turn 10 years old, had been eying it as well. In the end I gave it to my daughter much to her excitement.  She’s worn it a few times now and it has held up well.  It’s surprising the amount of warmth it holds in.

This second capelet was made with Caron Simply Soft Yarn in the color Lavender Blue using a size I-9 hook.  The only change I made was to the placement of the tie strings.  This time I placed the higher up to avoid curly along the edges of the neckline.  Instead of going to my niece, I’m giving this one to my co-workers daughter for Christmas.  I like the capelet much better in this yarn.  It’s softer and has a better drape across the shoulders.  I’ve been looking around for a different capelet pattern to do for my niece and have settled on a few potential candidates.  I’ll be interested to see how this different pattern works up.

Can you tell that I like capelets?  ;]
