I finished this recently. It was a super easy, quick knit. It only took me three evenings to finish (that's quick for me ;) ).

I got the pattern here: http://www.geocities.com/julsey723/Reversible_Winter_Capelet.pdf

I used Knit Picks Sierra in Natural.

I LOVE your finished capelet. Great yarn choice and color! :happydance:

Thanks for posting this. I am in the process of knitting this too. I wish I could say I finished mine in three days. I'm getting close, but I'm into week 2. I had a bit of trouble with the yarn-over concept :frog: , but thanks to Amy's video am back on track and hope to finish soon. Maybe I'll have one to post in the next week.

Great job!! :cheering: :cheering:

Thank you!! :blush:

And thank you Andrea -- that's so sweet of you to mention the Chickami.

I'm wearing the capelet over a chickami (from Chicknits (http://www.chicknits.com/catalog/chickami.html)) I finished a bit ago. I'm pleased that they look good together, and the pin I bought (on sale -- woo hoo) matches the cami perfectly! :happydance:

I'm wearing the cami under the capelet in the pic, although it's kinda hard to see.

You can maybe see it a little better in this photo that my dh took before I put the pin on. I know I keep cutting my head off -- but apparently I wasn't having a good day -- I look like someone who hasn't had a good night's sleep in YEARS! Oh wait, that's true, I haven't. Explains a lot. ;)

I love it!!

Just as a reference, how many skeins of sierra did you use? :thinking:

I bought two and used all of one and part of the other. I probably have about 1/2 of a ball left over.

Andrea -- Yay! That's awesome. Can't wait to see it when you're finished! Where did you order your yarn from?

I'm knitting one of these for myself ... you look to be about the same size as me ... do you know how many sts you ended up with for the sleeves? I'm using needles which are veeeeeeerry short and I can't separate everything out enough to try it out.

Scratch that even ... how many rounds of the increase row did ya do? (AKA how many holes in the shouler line?)

Looks nifty! :cheering: I :heart: the cami too :inlove:

Oops sorry I didn't see this until today! I got it from
www.knitters-underground.com. Came out to $25 or so for 3 skeins. Not too bad. I haven't cast on yet, as I'm trying to finish my 1st pait of socks :D
