Thanks elijor!  I'm excited: I've never made an article of clothing other than a hat or scarf, so this is a big step for me.  I'm gonna start this project in a few hours--wish me luck!

Good luck - just holler if you need more help.

One tip a few tips:
I hated doing yarnovers while purling so I just did the yarnovers on the knit side.
You should check the length and add rows as needed.
If you do the sleeves in the round on circular needles it will be reversible.
I did my second one with seed stitch for the neckband, front bands, and bottom. I like it much better that way.

Here's the link to my version!
Knitted with Debbie Bliss alpaca silk in lilac.
I checked my gauge, did a little math and modified to suit my gauge and measurements.  It fits!

Looks great!  What yarn did you use?  I love the color.

It's knit with Debbie Bliss Baby Alpaca-Silk - the regular weight - not the DK.  It is fuzzy enough to almost work in place of the polar.  It just took a little math. I just multiplied my own guage per inch (4) x the number of inches around my collarbone and added one as Julesey explains in her tutorial.

I love that Baby Alpaca Silk - it is soooo soft.

I finally got some pictures of my modified capelets!



The first one is made with a DK weight yarn, Patons' Brilliant.  I made the capelet longer overall.  The sleeves are at a sort of awkward length because I ran out of yarn. hehe.



This second one is made from black acrylic yarn, worsted weight.  I added long ties to make a sort of wrap mini cardi.  The ties are just done in 1x1 ribbing, picked up from the bottom of each side.

Thanks for sharing this versatile and easy pattern!

Wow iridescent I love the second one! Where did you pick up the stitches for the tie from--the side or the bottom? I guess the side makes more sense, just wondering.

Actually, I think the length makes it look really classy!  And I love how you turned the second one into a wrap cardi just by adding ties!  They're both awesome!
