For me, colour and texture rule and most of the inspiration feeding my imagination comes from the natural world. I see knitting as art, as viable as any other, and no matter what the tool or preferred palette, in human hands, magic happens.

Crocus in the Woods Capelet

1  1  

Wear this little capelet in spring or fall, or any time a chill threatens your arms or shoulders. I wear mine over a jacket. Knit in a variation of feather and fan I call 'Plumes' with increases made by adding yarnovers between the feathers, the capelet begins with a tulip collar that expands down across the shoulders in an exuberant play of color and texture. Alternatively, you can bypass the funnel neckline to make it collarless or drape over your shoulders. Make it shorter or longer. Instructions are given for each neckline possibility. The piece takes approximately 350-500 yards of mixed yarn.

Cowled Capelet

    

Brighten up your winter! Make toasty beautiful in this cowled capelet that feels like a glorious hug. Designed to be worn over a jacket or a coat (even bare arms), here’s a design as practical as it is gorgeous. Three versions provide multiple options: a hooded necklet for collar-like warmth, a hooded capelet as defense against winter’s bluster or a cowled capelet to add drama to even the biggest chill.

View 1 is knit on size 11 US/ 8mm circular needles while views 2&3 use size 13 US/9mm needles. All views suggest a mix of angora, mohair, silk and wool, though most worsted-weight or sport yarns doubled work for this design. Choose rich coppery reds, as in versions 1 & 3, version 2’s tapestry meld of purples, olives and teal or your own color scheme. My yarn forage list suggests variations. Seed stitch, knit and purl with one row of yarnover along the bottom edge are the only stitches used. Color Photo Maps help guide color blends. Skill level: intermediate beginner.

If you’ve ever been captured by the soft, undulating colors inside a seashell, you’ll understand the inspiration for this design. Undulating drop stitches of luminous Blue Heron yarn evoke the pearly shades of the seashell in this open, shoulder-draping capelet perfect for summer wear.

Seagrass Capelet

   

Here's a little capelet perfect for cool summer evenings and airconditioning. Shoulder shaping and a single button closure provides hands-free comfort combining the drape of a shawl with the ease of a poncho. It's easy to knit on circular needles (though not knit in the round) using a mix of yarns. In fact, just about any yarn will work for this style. Optional embellishments include ribbon tassels and beaded front ends.

A color guide in the pattern provides tips for selecting and blending your own color choices and an alternate view is shown in blue.
