Reversible cabled capelet
I was inspired for this capelet by two dominant trends for last winter, turtle-neck and grey to make this capelet, which will keep your neck and shoulders warm in the first chilly days of autumn.
Since brioche stitch is voluminous by itself, I chose a fine yarn in alpaca and merino wool, which will not add bulkiness to your knit, but will keep you warm and cosy.
The capelet was knit with Filatura di Crosa Alpaca yarn, but you can substitute it with another 4ply yarn, like Berroco Cosma, UK Alpaca Baby, or Drops Alpaca. Filatura di Crosa Alpaca has 200m/50gr. and gives 22sts x 29r in 10cm.
The capelet is worked in one piece circular, and from down to top and accentuated decreases give the shoulder shaping. It is reversible and can be worn from both sides.
