Hi

I'm new to posting here although I've been lurking for a while.  it looks like many of you are whizzes at deconstructing the Anthropologie knits. I totally love this capelet from their new winter collection and it looks pretty easy to make (stitch pattern wise, looks like a basic rib with reverse stockinette and the decorative holes are yo K1 yo) but I have no idea how to go about constructing it or figuring out a pattern for it or if a similar pattern for it already exists somewhere that i could follow.

Would love any advice or help from people here in figuring it out. Thanks so much in advance!

I saw that in the winter gift catalog-let thing and had the same idea! It doesn't look too difficult, its made from basic stitches, I'll need some help deciphering the pattern though, I've never tried that before.

those eyelets are actually raglan seams. done from the top down i think

have a look at glampyre free patterns, or buy her one-skein wonder pattern.

i'd borrow them as a guide for top-down raglan construction, but alter the pattern for your gauge. Also the drapey-taper bits at the front would need to be worked out.

the more i look at it the more i would recommend buying the one-skein-wonder. my OSW looks almost identical in 'cut' (as opposed to actual gauge and stitch pattern) at the back, so you'd just need to work out the front, which i think is just increased, but done somehow so it drapes nicely.

or, if youre patient, zoom in and count how many stitches are cast on, etc.
good ol' anthropologie website is designed for design-theft, methinks.

This is an easy pattern to translate!  Swatch in a bullky weight yarn in 1x1 rib.  Measure around your lower neck and CO the appropriate amount of sts.  Knit in 1x1 rib for 1-2 inches. You may also want to look at Glampyre's Bad Penny pattern from knitty: http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring04/PATTbadpenny.html, which shows how to do raglan increases with a y/o detail.  The main body of the capelet is knit in reverse stockinette.  I don't think the sleeves are separated.  Knit to the desired length - 7-8 inches? with raglan increases. Knit the last inch or so in 1x1 ribbing.

Simple and winter wonderful Smiley  Good luck!

Edit: I didn't see the back of the pattern before - the sleeves are connected.  I agree with lupinbunny - check out the OSW pattern for additional directions Smiley

thank you guys for all your help. in theprinted catalog, thehem at the front of the capelet actually is shown as flat (not drapey as in the web photo) and the construction is the same as the back, so i think if i follow the one-skein wonder pattern that would probably work for both the front and back.

if and when i figure it out I'll be sure to post a photos!

Any luck in figuring the pattern out? I 'll try to come up with something this weekend.
