New! Atacama Alpaca Capelet

Atacama Alpaca Capelet
Cost: $45.00

Araucania’s Atacama alpaca from Chile yarn is so soft and beautifully hand-dyed in interesting colors. This little capelet is knit as a rectangle lengthwise on straight needles, then each end is gathered and topped with a big crocheted button. We used simple stitch patterns that make this a fun and easy project to knit up quickly for gifts and for beginner knitters. We package the yarns and pattern in our handy white canvas Knittingbag tote. Needles optional. A Knittingbag design.
