Have you seen this capelet from Anthropologie's Winter '05 collection? I think I figured out the pattern...Here are some photos of my interpretation, and the pattern. It's really easy (I started on Saturday!)

I used 1 balls of Rowan Polar on size 11 needles. (gauge = 12 st and 16 rows over 4)

CO 49 st
1 x 1 rib for 2 inches to create neckline

Raglan Increases: (you will need 4 stitch markers to separate the body into 5 sections: left front, left sleeve, back, right sleeve, right front)

Row 1, RS: k2, p6, yo, pm, p1, yo, p7, yo, pm, p1, yo, p15, yo, pm, p1, yo, p7, yo, pm, p1, yo, p6, k2
Row 2 and all WS rows: knit all stitches
Row 3 and all RS rows: k2, *p to next marker, yo, sl marker, p1, yo* repeat from * 3 more times, p until last 2 st, k2

Continue raglan increases until sleeve measures the circumference of your upper arm. End with a WS row.

Split sleeves and body:
RS: k2, p to 1st marker, move all st from 1st to 2nd marker onto scrap yarn (right sleeve).  P to 3rd marker.  Move all st from 3rd to 4th marker onto another piece of scrap yarn (left sleeve). P to last 2 st, k2.
WS: Knit all st
Continue in reverse stockinette stitch for 4 more rows
Switch to 1 x 1 rib, for 5 rows. BO all st

Pick up all st from scrap yarn.
Work back and forth in 1 x 1 rib for 5 rows. BO all st
Seam ribbing on sleeves

Thats it, youre done!  This is easy, I swear! 
Finish with a pin at the neck, or sew a button on, whatever you want!
The other cool thing about this, is its reversible! I like the reverse st side better, its more vintage looking.

Here are some detail shots:

Thanks for looking!

Edit: oops...late night stitch counting leaves one (very important one) out...and adds one where it doesn't belong!

Wow, it's so cute!  I think that may become my first knitted garment Smiley  Thanks for posting the pattern!

P.S.  If you don't mind my asking, what size do you wear?  I'm wondering if I should make it a bit larger (I'm about a size 12).

You are amazing, julsey723  Shocked you always inspire me to make new stuff,  just when I vow to get throught the long list of to knits, you post something else beeyootiful, and look, there is a tutorial too! Geez.... what am I gonna do with you?  Roll Eyes

Just jokin btw, and lovely garment. I will just CO tonite and save myself the thought process of will I, won't I...

Start a KAL, julsey723... its only a matter of time before others jump in with both feet to make this.... they should have a place to land.

(Emmie poses like Horatio on CSI Miami, pushes her shades up her nose, places arms akimbo.... <in a dry mocking tone>what we have here gals, is a SERIOUSLY cool pattern... yup, you just do that... while I state the obvious...)

Hi. I just wanted to say that I like yours better than the $98 original. I really like it and at a fraction of the cost!

Ooh, I love this!

And I love that so many people on this board have found designs out on Anthropologie and figured out how to make them themselves -- this is gorgeous! And a sweet knock-off!

Most definitely adding this to my queue -- thank you for providing the pattern!

I was wondering if you wouldn't mind posting the size of the garment?  I know I'm going to need to make it larger, and I was just wondering by how much

laden autumn, here I stand
