Stitch Studio by Nicole Bordeaux Cowl Neck Capelet

Even after the chill of fall and winter arrive there'’s still time to heat up your style. Knit this cowl neck capelet today and look stunning in any weather.

Use a gauge of 13 sts x 24 rows (4") in K2, P2 Rib using smallest needle to knit a capelet that measures approximately 30" in circumference at neck edge, 60" in circumference at lower edge, and 22" in length. Be sure to check your gauge. If it takes you fewer stitches to match the gauge, try using a smaller size needle; if it takes you more stitches, try a larger size needle.

Show us some of what you've knitted recently! Post pics: #ACMooreInspired
