Introduction

Morning! Some of you've asked me for the pattern for the green capelet that I wore in the Mixing Yarns episode from the 2nd season of Knitty Gritty. Well Knitties (or in this case, Hookers), ask and you shall receive! This is a super simple number that can be whipped up in the matter of a couple of hours. If you've never crocheted before no worries, this is a great beginner's project and my How-to section's got your back! Enjoy!, Vickie

I love this! I just made it and the pattern was easy to follow. Churned it out in a few hours. I sewed little pearl beads onto a crocheted flower and attached it to the shoulder. Perfect!
