So I decided to make a capelet for one of my SILs, and the second one was to get a pair mittens. But upon seing it, she asked for a capelet as well... So I made two ! Good it's such an easy and quick pattern, and that I had the same yarn in a lighter shade in the stash..

Anyway, here''s the first capelet modeled by my girl (along with the beret for my MIL). Would you believe I had to bribe her (with a sweet) to take those pics ? !! And then afterwards she asked for more pics... to get more sweets..!!   Grin    Then worn by the recipient, #1 SIL

And then here's the second capelet, just before I added the pompoms (I tried to take more pics after but please don't even ask for them !!  )

As for the specs, I added one shell pattern row for the first capelet, and  two repeats for the second one. Same size hook (actually had to buy a new hook after my plastic one broke after row 4 of first capelet... Ha !)
The yarn was recycled from an ugly frumpy huge coat. I believe it looks sooo much better now !! Grin

I loved this pattern, plus it was my first try doing shells/any sort of lacy crochet. But I just love the book, really I'd recommend it to anyone.
Only thing is there was so many ends to weave in at the end... So I thought I'd be clever for the second capelet and start right away by the top of the collar and do it all at once.. (decrease and then re-increase)/ But Alas, there WAS a reason to do it so: the foundation chain was too tight to achieve the right final look so I ripped it all and started again, just following the pattern.
