Does anyone know of a nice pattern for a girl's capelet that can be worn over a communion dress? I've searched around, and found a few that I can change up a bit, but if anyone knows of one, free or purchased, please let me know.

I looked up capelet on Ravelry and it shows some as a one piece thing you put over your head and a few that go around the shoulders and button at the top. Which kind are you thinking of making?

It's for a friend's daughter. She was thinking of something that is open in the front and can tie at the neck with a ribbon. I searched on ravelry and got a few ideas, but was hoping that someone could say "here."

Most of them I've seen have been for adults.

This one is pretty, but would have to be adjust for size.

This one says one size fits all... probably adults. It's really cute though.

I actually printed both of those up at work today. :teehee: We had an early dismissal because of a lack of heat in the building (it was only 8 degrees outside) so I had some time.

I think with the first one, if I just change the needle and yarn size it could work perfectly.

Thanks for looking!:muah:

GMTA! I'm sure it'll turn out cute whichever one you choose!
