Finished Wandering Aran Fields

Hi, I finished up my Wandering Aran Fields capelet this past week.
I used about 3 1/2 skeins of Cascade 220 in color #2401 burgandy. The cables show up pretty well with this yarn. This was my first time using Cascade 220. I enjoyed working the cable section. The 9 inches of ribbing for the collar is a lot of ribbing to knit if you know what I mean but it looks nice now that it's done. I'm pretty happy with the way this turned out.

    I'm knitting this as well and am wondering why in the directions it doesn't state how to connect the 'bands' to the 'capelet' portion - I am kind of experienced so I hate to ask but did you just knit the bands seperately, connect them and THEN knit the collar portion? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Yeah, I knitted them separately then kept the stitches on holders and then at the collar I knitted across the one band, across the top edge of the cape, then across the other band to connect them all, then continued on with the ribbing for the collar. Then I stitched the long sides of the bands along the side edges of the capelet. It doesn't spell this out in the pattern, but that's what I did.

    Nicole-Check Interweave press corrections section on their website. There are directions for connecting the bands.
