Nina made this scrumptious capelet from her new stock of Drops Brushed Alpaca Silk, holding one strand together with a strand of Kremke Stellaris for a touch of sparkle. It uses four balls of Brushed Alpaca Silk, and one spool of Stellaris.
It’s everything we expect from one of Nina’s designs – maximum elegance and practicality with minimum effort. A clean, simple design that anyone can make, and will look good on everyone.
The light, airy, brushed alpaca makes this garment incredibly soft and weightless – an ideal thing to roll up in a corner of your bag and always carry with you for those times when you don’t know how many layers you might need in your day.
Perfect as a light, extra layer in winter, when the lofty alpaca will trap warmth under your coat. Perfect for spring and autumn, when temperatures vary unpredictably and you need a layer you can put on or take off and stow in a small space in your bag. Perfect for summer, when going in and out of air-conditioning has the same effect. And perfect for looking stylish in any season.
The pattern is available from Nina at the store, or in the online shop. Remember that all of Nina’s patterns are free with purchase of yarn. So, if you are buying online, only put the yarn in your cart, and add a note with your order that you would like a free copy of the pattern.
