It's a bit of a silly thing to make. Or at least it is a silly reason to make it.
Pattern: Short Row Capelet from Scarf Style
Yarn: Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride - 2 skeins of silvery grey and one of purple
Notes: I started this project on a Sunday night and was done within a week. I finished this after I finished the Olympic knitting (but before I was smart and finished the Olympic weaving in of ends and blocking). The pattern is pretty easy to memorize after the first few repeats and while there is an error in my book it is a simple one to correct. I decided to make mine a little larger, so I could use a button clasp to close it rather than ties. I also used half double crochet for my trim rather than single. I am not sure how much of a difference that made beyond the striking difference in using a contrasting yarn for the trim. I attached the buttons with purple thread and small purple seed beads.
See a little detail for the button?
