Last year we had a terrific time making stocking stuffers and small precious gifts for the Holidays that you could add to the rest of your gifts for special people in your list, or to simply give them away to people on your second list (co-workers, the girl that cuts your hair, the smiling clerk that always takes care of you at the local bank, etc.) We are starting even earlier this year and this is our second installment, a pretty and feminine capelet. Very easy and fast to make!
As always, my choice of yarn is just a suggestion. I wanted two contrasting shades of red to set off the beautiful but simple lace insert. Enjoy!
