Eyelash Capelet

As I promised in last week’s post Working with Eyelash Yarn, here is the finished product and pattern for the Eyelash Capelet.

If you are not familiar with eyelash yarn, it would probably be a good idea to review last week’s post before attempting this pattern. I included some good tips there that will save you a mort of trouble when you start this pattern.

I don’t list a gauge for this pattern, because a) I’m not good enough with writing patterns yet to know how to do all of that, and b) it really isn’t all that important for this pattern because it’s kind of a one size fits most deal. This same capelet looks equally great on me (size 16/18), my mom (size 12), and my younger sister (size 6).

And without further ado, here’s the pattern.

Notes

  • You’re going to be working with two strands of yarn simultaneously
  • You want to crochet somewhat loosely. If your stitches are too tight, you’ll never be able to find them in the eyelash yarn.
  • Ch 3 at beginning of row counts as dc throughout project.

Materials

  • 5-2 oz. skeins of eyelash yarn

  • About 300 yds. of coordinating (or contrasting) worsted weight yarn. Material doesn’t really matter, but wool or a softer acrylic like Caron’s Simply Soft would work best. Cotton would be too thick and heavy.

  • Size J hook
  • Tapestry needle for weaving in ends

Instructions

Ch 73

Row 1: ch 3, dc in 3rd ch from hook, dc in each ch across.

Row 2: ch 3, dc in next 9 dc, 2 dc in next dc. Rpt across.

Row 3: ch 3, dc in each dc across.

Row 4: ch 3, dc in next 6 dc, 2 dc in next dc. Rpt across

Row 5: ch 3, dc in each dc across

Row 6: ch 3, dc in next 4 dc, 2 dc in next dc. Rpt across

(Note: there will be some leftover sts after the last inc. Just dc to the end of the row)

Row 7 & 8: ch 3, dc in each dc across

Row 9: ch 3, dc in next 9 dc, 2 dc in next dc. Rpt across

(Note: there will be some leftover sts after the last inc. Just dc to the end of the row)

Row 10: ch 3, dc in each dc across. Fasten off. Weave in ends.

Tie: Leaving a 6-8 inch tail (depending on how long you want your tie. I like it to be pretty long), sl st across the very first row, working in the other loop of the starting chain. Fasten off and leave another 6-8 inch tail.

Now all you gotta do is figure out how you want to style this little lady. You can do it full on dressy-like with a LBD:

Or do a work ready look with a button down and a skirt
