I will freely admit that I did not design this myself.  I didn't use a pattern, but I saw something I liked and was at least HEAVILY influenced by that design when I sat down to make this.  So, yeah. 

I wanted a capelet, but couldn't afford one, and I had a lot of yarn already.  This was made with 6 different yarns held together.  Since the resulting yarn was very chunky it only took a few hours to make.  I'd love to hear what you think, comments, questions, etc.... More info on my new blog, if you're interested.

That was my thought too.  I have a nice khaki pea coat that I rarely wear because it is boring.  I'm hoping this would spice up the party.  Unfortunately it RARELY gets that cold here in VA.  But a girl can hope.

That looks gorgeous and really warm and snuggly! Such a good idea to mix several strands of yarn together, I haven't tried that before. I followed the link to your blog- looking forward to more craftyness!
