Ruffled capelet without sleeves
I'm using Bouton d'or Dandy whose tension is slightly tighter than the recommended one, 15/21 instead of 14/23, and consequently had to make a few changes to the pattern:
-I've decreased one sticth less for each group of BO stitches for the shoulders
-I've done 8cm instead of the recommended 14 for the collar as I thought 14cm was way too long and made me feel like I had a little sausage round my neck
-I've seamed the shoulders using matress stitch for a neat finish
Although my capelet is tighter because of the yarn I've used, I wonder how big the original model is and how many people it fits, as mine fits me perfectly and I usually wear XS tops.
I've bought 6 balls of Dandy, whose yardage is very close to the recommended yarn, and have 3 left before starting the ruflles. I wonder if I'll use it up but my guess is that I will have some left.
