Marina Di Chioggia Capelet

This capelet is worked in the round from the bottom up, with a simple honeycomb lace pattern hiding behind front pleats and repeated at the back. This lace pattern is reminiscent of the texture and color of Marina Di Chioggia pumpkins. Basic stockinette and garter stitch let the pleats take center stage in a cozy accessory that will stay put around your shoulders when fall’s chill arrives.
