The infamous Anthropologie-inspired capelet. I love the pattern, and I know I don't need to provide the link, since it's so popular. Definitely easy and decently fast to knit - I must make more! I used KP Sierra for this one, but in the future, I will use superwash yarn, cuz the armpits felted after I wore it to my bro's wedding.

That is so cute! I love the little flower and clasp you have on it! It makes it look so sweet and dressy!

GREAT JOB - Looks perfect on you and it's so cool that were able to wear it to such a special occasion.

Your comment about superwash and felting did have me cracking up though! :rofling: Someboday was getting her dancing on!!

I love it! I just made one in KP Sierra in Natural...I love the black! It's such a fast knit, it'd be fun to have tons of different colors!!!!! :cheering:

Thanks everyone for the lovely comments! I had made a pink one before the black one, but it came out too small and too short. I've already ordered some superwash bulky yarn to combat the felting prob. And yes, Marce, I did get my dance on (just a tad)! :lol:
