Rina and shooting star - your capelets are beautiful! I have never made a capelet as I am not sure where I would wear it - are you getting much wear out of yours?

Thanks for the lovely comment Cheesy

I didn't make it for myself.  I made it for Banga (also on craftster) in a swap we did.

I think capelets are good expecially in the summer when you get a cool breeze and you want something light just to cover your shoulders and keep the chill away.

I'm looking for cable afghan (tunisian) crochet hooks. Personal swap anyone?

ooh, this board really inspires me! i want to make a capelet, but i'm not sure what a capelet looks good with... Sad i don't want it to sit in the back of my closet.

Milobo, I'm actually not wearing mine because it turns out that Homespun doesn't really work as a garment; it tends to get stretched out of shape.   Sad But it's super warm and cozy so I wear it when I'm doing stuff on the computer or crocheting/knitting. 

To answer glossy's question, capelets look great with a tank/camisole and skirt.  Especially if they're lacy, like Shooting Star's.  I think my strategy is going to be, if I want to wear it in public, I need to use nicer yarn. 

Belated thanks, Star, for the pattern link!   Smiley  I'm really tempted to make another one with it.
