I finished this up last night and wore it out! I used the pattern from http://peonyknits.blogspot.com (available in her sidebar). The yarn is Joann Sensations Dolcetto (Wool/Cotton Blend). I actually really like this yarn--very soft and light but still warm! :thumbsup: Though now that I've blocked it it seems to have stretched out, so I'll have to make sure it shrinks back a bit!

Very cute! Does it have some kind of closure, or do you have to use a pin of some kind to keep it on?

Thanks all! :D I just use a pin to close it, but you could add a button or something if you wanted.

The yarn seems to have shrunk back now that it's dry, but I haven't tried it back on. The only thing strange about this yarn is it's smell--I can't quite explain it! Not wooly, but a little odd. I don't think it's noticable to anyone but me though. ;)

Oh YUM! It look GREAT! I just found this same pattern last week, linked from KPC, and I am totally planning to make this as my first attempt at a non-accessory garment, after Christmas. It looks just super on you. Now I'm all psyched to try making it myself!

Thanks! It's a pretty easy pattern--it would work well for a first garment! I'm usually not a fan of capelets or similar things, but I really like this one!

And the yarn did shrink back to size after drying, in case anyone was wondering. ;)
