The mini back-story of the capelet is a wedding that I was invited to. The wedding was being held outdoors in a tent. This time of year can be cool and I do not have any nice sweaters and am not much of a scarf/shawl girl, so I searched the internet for ideas. In the end I decided it would have to be a capelet.

After taking it all in, I designed my own. I combined a few of the ideas I saw and made a reversible capelet. Check out the pictures below to see what I came up with. The pattern side is a cotton and the reverse is corduroy. It is soft, comfortable and fun to wear.

It was a beautiful wedding with beautiful people. A wonderful time for all.
