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.

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.
