Posh Capelet with Roses

Roses galore! Nicky Epstein's American Beauty Rose Capelet from her fun book, "Knitting Over the Edge" is so elegant, I just had to make it. I substituted Classic Elite's POSH cashmere & silk, used recommended needle size, US 9. Gauge changed to 17 sts = 4" instead of 15 sts so to get a S-M size, I knit the L size.

8 skeins - Classic Elite POSH (30% cashmere, 70% silk) - 125 yds
Retail: $33 (Knittingbag sells for $30/skein)
Needles: US 9 & US 8
Color: Blue
