This capelet was designed specifically for Shetland Wool Week 2022. It is inspired by the beautiful bead collar like necklaces of Greenland, that are made in an endless number of colours and variations. The capelet is meant for those days when you’d like just that extra little cosy warmth around the neck and shoulders, without anything bunching up in your jacket sleeves.
The capelet is knitted in one piece, top down, with a soft, squishy rib collar folded double. The pearl structure is achieved by combining knit and slip stitches, then turning the piece inside out before working the lace edge. Despite the stranded look to the fabric, you will always only be working with one colour at a time. The lace edge is a modification of the traditional Shetland Old Shell lace.
The capelet is knitted in DK yarn.
