Cute Capelet

All done…yeah! I like how it turned out more than I thought I would with this variegated color. I used a ribbon (almost like a shoestring feel) yarn called South West Trading Company: Phoenix 100% Soy Silk. I got it on sale at my local yarn store so it cost me $14 plus time. I’m going to make a black one next for evening wear. Love it!

    Really lovely colors! I have some of the soy silk phoenix, and I was thinking of how I could use it. How many skeins did you use?

    I didn't even use 2 skeins of the Phoenix Soy Silk...maybe 1 and a half...tons left over.

    great -- I have 2 skeins! oh, one last question -- what size needles did you use? (I don't have the book nearby so I'm wondering if you diverged from it in any way) thanks.

    I don't recall what the needle sizes were...but I used exactly what the book said to use - didn't change anything about the pattern and didn't do a swatch...you switch out two sizes throughout to do the short rows and regular rows.

    My LYS said the Phoenix would work in place of the suggested yarn and the Phoenix had like double the yardage per skein than a regular skein. That's why it went so far.
