Ohhhh can I tell you how much I adore this thing?
- I got a whim up my drawers to design something new.
- I grabbed yarn and started what I thought was going to be a triangle shawl.
- It morphed from being a triangle to a blob to what looked like a squashed alien gramma and then to a butterfly and then… this. BOOM.
It really was like a stream of consciousness just emerging as it wanted to. Thanks to my friend, Susan for coming up with the name!
BOOM! Did you see me blink? BOOM! There I did it again. Coolest. Thing. EVER! Well. Close.
Light-as-air Ripples of Gorgeousness
•An advanced pattern for those comfortable with crochet. If you’re familiar with following patterns, you’ll be fine. Just work each row as it comes up.
•Light-as-air! You’ll barely feel like you’re wearing anything. The lace weight really seems to float!
•A great challenge when you’re bored with your current patterns. Each row is different. There are no repeats as I designed this row by row, not sure what it would end up being!
•Can also be made in fingering weight if you want more structure to your capelet.
•Ideal for multiple shades of solid yarn, but use 1 colorway if you like and opt for semi-solids or tonals. Soft variegates work too.
•You’ll need a size G (4.00 mm) hook. You’ll want to be comfortable with single, double and triple crochets, Dc2tog, Trc2tog, as well as chaining and slip stitching.
Isn’t it just dreamy?
YARN: It uses 3.3 oz of lace weight yarn (640 yards total). I used my yak silk lace weight which is DREAMY beyond CREAMY. Soooo soft. Luxurious. Shimmering. Long-wearing.
Each skein has 3.5 oz, so 1 skein will do the trick if you’re using just one color. However… I used 3 different colors, so it took me 3 skeins. (Flight, Gulf and Seagull colorways)
It doesn’t weigh a thing… really. It’s so lightweight, you won’t even feel like you have anything on. Great for warmer months or ya know… whenever.
