Is is a capelet? Cape? Huge cowl? Dare I say it.....poncho???? K, this squishy warm luxurious capelet is done up in 100% baby alpaca. Chunky style. It is a top down, in the round knit, started with a tubular cast on to preserve its stretchiness. Modeled here by my beautiful friend Brooke, you can see that it is the ultimate layering piece. Over a t-shirt? Blouse? Leather jacket?

Did you know that some folks would tell you that a "capelet" must have an opening, i.e. it must button or tie in the front or back, versus being all one piece. Otherwise, you supposedly have to call it a poncho. Try selling a pattern for a poncho in 2011......just sayin'.

Anyhoo, the pattern will be available in the next day or two. Call it whatever you like, the bottom line is that it is Luscious. So there.

Capelet is indeed the most accurate description, but naughty me wants to call it a Booby Cosy. Yes I'm 12.
