NEW PATTERN CALYPSO CAPELET

I got a very nice surprise today. UPS came by and brought this book by House of Birches with 10 designs on a circular knitting. It is edited by Kara Gott Warner. One of the designs is mine.


I love the photography in this book. Some of the projects are simple, so it is a good book for a beginner. The illustrations, charts, book layout are done beautifully. It is available on Amazon and on Annie's Attic (pdf is an option here)

For this book I made this capelet out of lace weight yarn by Louet called Mooi. I played with the traditional Orenburg Shawl technique that is normally used on even finer lace yarn and with smaller needles. So, it is not exactly a very traditional piece in that sense. The border is done first and worked in flat. After that sts are picked up for working in the round.


Gauge: 28 sts and 56 rnd = 4 inches/ 10 cm
Needle size: US 2
1-2 skeins of Mooi by Louet
