so i had this costume planned for halloween, a sky pirate and i was thinking that i could have a boned collar attached to my coat, one that would stand up and i could attach 'scale mail' to for an armoured look.

and then i have this ball i have to go to, and i thought that it would be cool if i had an elizabethian ruff style collared capelet to go over my dress, which is very simple and elegant.

so i started thinking about how i could go about doing it, and i was lookign through my stash and i made a prototype.






it has four boned points and can be bent into a few different shapes, but the one shown is the one i like best.  the one i wear to the ball will be in black and white and beaded (hopefully mohair for the yarn) and have a capelet. i made the boning myself, out of 16 g wire and duct tape

and i did a variation of the loops scarf i love it so much, its warm and fuzzy and can be worn a billion different ways.

living with an inferno doesn't mean it has to swallow you whole, you just have to know when to feed the flames.

Great idea & design! I can't wait to see it in B & W. Also, I just love the scarf! The color is stunning. What yarn did you use for it?
