Just found your blog, I love your patterns. Thanks for being so generous and sharing them with everyone!

craftybegonia said...

You are very welcome! You guys are so sweet and kind, it is my pleasure to share with you. Doesn't it remind you a little bit of when the leaves begin to turn in the fall? That is what it looked like to me when I put the colors together.

Take care!

I love your pattern, but I am having a little problem. How many stitches at the end of row 8.

Thank you

G.C

Craftybegonia said...

Gisenald, you must have 145 dc at the end of row 8. I counted them on the capelet to make sure.

Sonia said...

Hi Clotilde,

Thank you for sharing your pattern! This capelet is beautiful! I am stuck on row three - can you help? It says there should be 71dc but I fall short by 3dc or so. I checked over my work and everything is correct up until I start row three.

Thank you,
Sonia

Craftybegonia said...

Hi Sonia, I don't see that defect in the pattern. But let's resolve it for you. Go back on the row about 10 sts and increase evenly until you get the 71 sts you will need for the next row. No need to deprive yourself of a successful outcome, there is always a way to solve everything. Hope your capelet turns out lovely!

Stormy said...

Could you please tell me how to make this Caplet in a larger size as far as width not length?

Craftybegonia said...

Hi Stormy, You sent me on a path of some heavy thinking! This pattern was made for size medium. According to my mom, who is an excellent seamstress, the only way to enlarge it is the same way that you reduced the other one. Measure for size large, make a paper pattern, write your measurements in that paper pattern, then go by your measurements, applying the pattern to them. That is the only way we know how to do it.

Wynne said...

Roughly how much yarn of each color will I have to buy for this? I want to make this for a friend who will be having a mastectomy. Thank you so much for sharing it with us.

Craftybegonia said...

Hi Wynne, unless otherwise noted, it would be just scraps. You can buy 1 skein Gold, the other two colors are simply scraps. This is a very economical project. Hope this helps!

MSV said...

Hi Craftybegonia,

First of all, Congrats on this work of art...it's just so feminine...I love it!

I want to give it a shot, but in reading thru the pattern I found that the asterisk in Row 13 is missing so I have no idea where the repeat starts. Please advise.

Thank you so much for sharing!

Craftybegonia said...

Thank you so much for your nice comment. I shouldn't have put in the asterisk, it was totally unnecessary, the row is repeated from the start, across. I have added another * at the beg to avoid confusion. Thanks for calling attention to the problem. The row is simply repeated across.

irishbloom said...

So sorry but I am having trouble and I'm only on the second row. As I understand it, the 2nd row should have 71 dc stitches. That being said, a repeat of 6 dc's + 2 dc's 9x = 72 stitches (which exceeds the required 71 stitch total for the row) and that's before you count the turning chain, + 5dc's + 2dc's and the 1 dc that ends the row. The math for all of that = 80 stitches... What am I doing wrong??? Help. I love this capelet.

Craftybegonia said...

Hi Irishbloom! I'm in bed with the flu (it comes in handy to have a laptop)and between a runny nose and sneezes I made the 3 first rows of the capelet according to the pattern that I have online. 1s row is 6 1 sts, 2nd row is 70 and 3rd row is 78 sts. You are widening up towards the shoulders. Remember that on the second row you are to start the row with 1 dc in each of first 5 sts, then 2 dc in next dc, and then you are to repeat the sts according to what it is said in the parentheses, in other words, you are going to repeat that same sequence of stitches and increases 6 times to get your number of sts. I did it and got the 78 sts. Do it slowly and you'll see it will work out.
Thanks for waiting, but right now, I'm sick as a dog!
