47 Ca­bled capelet

The Knitter - - Contents - He­len Ard­ley

THIS CA­BLED capelet will be quick to knit, as it is worked in an aran-weight yarn. He­len Ard­ley’s de­sign uses Erika Knight’s Vin­tage Wool, which is spun from Masham fleece and knits up into a beau­ti­ful fab­ric; it’s avail­able in 10 muted colours. The capelet fea­tures a chunky ca­ble pat­tern and a fold-over ribbed edg­ing, with a split seam. It can be worn with the open seam at one shoul­der, or at the front of the body.
