Knot Stitch Capelet

No more cold shoulders in the air-conditioning! I decided to try this knot stitch capelet as I was headed for vacation and wanted to take a project that would be small. This capelet seemed packable – just one skein of yarn and a crochet hook. The hardest part for me was making the starting band. The first three rows of stitches twisted on my first attempts. Once I carefully made sure those three rows were straight, the rest was easy. The knot stitch requires you to pull up a long loop with each stitch…keeping that loop consistent in size was important to keep each row looking even. The pattern called for 13 rows of knot stitch – I worked 15 rows until I used all my yarn. Mine still came out a bit shorter than photos of others I saw, but it’s just right for me.

The pattern is free online from Rachel Choi.
