Superyak Capelet with Arm Warmers
Cost - $130 (M-L = +$20.00)
We love this perfect classic cape design from Karabella Yarns. Knit in an interesting new yarn called “Superyak” (a blend of yak and extrafine merino) for a so-soft feel. The kit includes yarn in 4 colors (brown, grey, burgundy and a mélange) and includes instructions for arm warmers. The capelet is worked in one piece on circular needles with double decreases and yarn color changes. A button band is added after. Optional: 5 buttons. A Karabella design kitted by Knittingbag. Kit includes a free white canvas knitting bag.
