Calypso Capelet

You don't need to be on the islands to feel like dancing when you wear this captivating shawl. Stitch this free pattern, and then throw it on over a tank top and a pair of blue jeans for a casual night out -- or wear it over a sleeveless dress to add some drama for a night out.

This free knitting pattern is based on a traditional Orenburg shawl technique and is worked in a garter stitch lace. The border is worked in rows and sewn into a circle. The remainder is knit in the round featuring three different spring-inspired motifs. This e-pattern was originally published in Make It This Weekend.

Size: One size fits most. Made with superfine (fingering) weight yarn, size 1/2.25mm double-point or straight needles and size 2/2.75mm 24" circular needle.
