Morning! Some of you’ve asked me for the pattern for the green capelet that I wore in the Mixing Yarns episode from the 2nd season of Knitty Gritty. Well Knitties (or in this case, Hookers), ask and you shall receive! This is a super simple number that can be whipped up in the matter of a couple of hours. If you’ve never crocheted before no worries, this is a great beginner’s project and my How-to section’s got your back! Enjoy!, Vickie

This caplet can of course, be worn as is but if you¹re feeling extra sassy, here are some embellishment suggestions:

* Silk corsage pin
* Sewn-on beads or sequins
* Sewn-on ribbon trim along neckline
* Ribbon laced through neckline and tied in a bow.
