It seems like there's been a wide array of yarn used for the capelet--wool, mohair, chinchilla, acrylic--why not chenille! They all have a different look with this pattern, but I've loved every one that I've seen on this thread..

I'd love to see it in chenille too!

Thanks. I'm going to try it, then.
But first, I have to finish all the projects laying around the house. Roll Eyes

I got some advice from crumpet over on the stitch n bitch board, and i was knitting along happilly until i bound off and realized my capelet is tight and about 9 inches long.  uhhh...  i now have a drapelet instead of a capelet.  i am vegan so, i used 100% acrylic yarn and can't block it to try to stretch it to size.

crumpet's advice was right on the money.  i think my trouble is in row 3.

row 3 says: p3, *drop 1, p1: rep from * to last 2 sts, p2.  i didn't follow those directions exactly, because i thought i was only supposed to drop the yarn overs, which for me, was more like drop 1, p2.  did i do something wrong (well, yeah..), but what?  i did end up with too many stitches at the end, but i figured that might just be because of the whole yo confusion in the pattern.  it looks purty, but it's no capelet.


this is my first lace project and about my fifth week of knitting seriously.  Grin

veganpurlgurl - you did better than I did!

I screwed up Row 3, so when I got to the row in the pattern that actually had a stitch count, I was probably twenty stitches under!  I ended up with a charming capelet for a 10 year old.

After emailing with legallyblonde, we figured out that I was dropping real stitches in addition to the yarnovers...so it actually sounds like you are doing Row 3 right (purling 2). 

Maybe your guage is off, and if you had a tight capelet, AND more stitches, it sounds like you may be increasing too.  Sorry I can't offer more help!

I never would have thought to do that in Chinchilla but it looks really nice. I love the color!

In spite of my claims I wouldn't start a second one in mohair until I got a couple other projects done, here it is!

Hi! I am new to this site, so pardon any errors!! I wish to thank you for your help in completing this capelet!! I did frog it twice and made a few errors, but I am still pleased.  My capelet is also small, but I think I might knit tightly.  If I ever figure it out, I will post pictures!!  I only used one skein of the merino frappe, and oh how I hate to make pom poms!  I did add a half pattern for length, but it is still a little narrow for me.  I still am planning to block it.  It looks great on my almost 9 yo!! Again, thanks to this site i was able to figure out the rows.  Linda

legallyblonde--I love how delicate your capelet looks with that mohair. It's beautiful!

Hi everyone,
Here is my finished capelet. This was my first big project (which means that it wasn't a scarf!). Reading everyone's posts helped me figure out what the heck I was supposed to do - thanks!
It has a few mistakes but I love it anyway!

I just had to jump on the bandwagon!  Here's mine:

I did it in Paton's Divine on US 17s (12 3/4mm) and inspired by Lothruin's shell capelet over in the crochet boards I wove a ribbon through the top to close it instead of making the ties and pompoms.  I think it makes for a more formal capelet.  Sorry for the bad picture (and apparently filthy mirror)
