I had a few balls of James C Brett Twinkle Dk laying around, in my stash. I pondered for quite a while, as to what use I would put them.
Once those thoughts festered into an idea, I set to and designed this Capelet.
I thought of all those times I was going somewhere special and wanted to wear that nice dress, or lovely top. I knew I was going to be cold, but it is all about the look, isn’t it? One of my testers first comment on this project was how elegant it looks as you are working it up. So you can wear that gorgeous dress and still look great without being cold.
I added beading to the edging and I quite love doing beads. I know a lot of people take one look and think, BEADS! NO WAY!
But beading is rather simple and fun. I added a photo tutorial to show just how easy they can be.
I don’t fuss with threading a ton of beads onto my yarn prior to crocheting. I use a needle and thread to place the bead onto the yarn. And, if you are thinking I sew them on, then you would be wrong. The needle and thread are used to pull the bead onto the yarn.
Guess you will have to get the pattern if you want a closer look.
This pattern works up quickly.
