We are excited to continue celebrating The Fibre Co.'s 2021 Star Designer Series with The Droplet Capelet by Denise Bayron in Canopy Fingering. This kit includes the yarn (either 2 or 3 hanks depending on your chosen size), a code for downloading the pattern and project bag. Both the Droplet Capelet & the Waiting for Rain Shawl will be on display in the shop May 3-31 if you'd like to see them in person before ordering.
About the Droplet Capelet:
The Droplet Capelet is a unique, versatile, and stylish accessory. Shaped like a drop of water, it is rounded on one side and has a peak on the other. It’s worked seamlessly in the round from the top down using a beginner-friendly lace stitch that can be easily memorized. A Twisted German Cast On ensures the neckline is stretchy and can be pulled over your head, and a Stretchy Shawl Bind Off is also used so that the capelet will drape elegantly over the shoulders.
Inspired by the canopy layer of tropical rainforests, The Fibre Co.'s Canopy Fingering blends fine Merino wool, baby alpaca, and bamboo together to create fingering-weight yarn with a fantastic drape that is both soft and strong. A palette of bright, rich duotones makes for beautiful colorwork projects and shows off textured stitches well.
