Pattern Notes

This pattern is worked in the round from the bottom up.
The capelet is divided into 8 sections which are worked consecutively around the piece.
The top edge is finished with a crocheted trim.
One stitch marker should stand out from the others. Use the unique marker to denote the beginning of the round.
The stitch count will vary from round to round.
Certain rounds require you to work stitches as they appear on the needles, (i.e knit stitches which were knitted on the previous round or purl stitches which were purled on the previous round.)
Use waste yarn to insert a life line on every 12th or 24th round to save your work if you have to rip out a repeat.
