here is the 411:
Pattern-Anthropologie-inspired capelet by Julsey723. I pretty much followed the pattern as far as cast on and needle size (I even knit a swatch!) I preferred the knit side of the fabric, so made it the right side of my work. I added a half an inch to the collar rib for the neck, and also added a few rows to the arms so the stripes would be the same width on the body and the sleeves. I also added some length to the body because 1)I had enough yarn and hate to have little bits left and 2)I wanted it to be a bit longer to cover a bit more. So I have more of a minisweater than a capelet. The bottom two stripes are also in k1p1 rib instead of just the few rows called for in the pattern. Great pattern and a super easy knit!
Yarn-Filatura Di Crosa Tweeddy 100% wool(the darker grey, I am not sure of exact color-perhaps the color was Tweedy as well),Colorado Yarns Vail 100% superwash wool(light grey), white mystery cotton yarn from MIL. Since I did not have enough of any one yarn in my stash, I decided stripes would be quite nice, of course the yarns that would make lovely stripes were not the same weight, so I decided to hold the Vail yarn with the mystery cotton for the lighter stripes.
Have I mentioned I love this sweater! I will make more of these maybe throw a little variation in there to keep it interesting hmmm...cables perhaps? This sweater was finished within a 24 hour time period so I have no excuse not to make more!
