Seamless Love Free Crochet Capelet Pattern

Seamless Love Free Crochet Capelet Pattern

Seamless Love Free Crochet Capelet Pattern
by Kristin Omdahl

The crochet design explores two of my favorite techniques: seamless crochet and crochet lace. The yoke of the capelet is worked in seamless crochet tile motifs and can easily be made into a scarf instead of the yoke of this capelet. The lower body is crocheted sideways and joined to the yoke, seamlessly of course! There are only 2 ends to weave in per ball used!

What you will need:
550 (750) yards sport weight yarn
or
(2) balls of Be So Sporty Yarn
or
2 (3) balls of Be So Bare Yarn
H/8 (5mm) crochet hook
(5) 1" buttons, shown in La Mode style #4674

Gauge: one motif, after blocking is 1.5" x 1.5"

Finished size(s)
Scarf: 7.5" x 60"
Capelet: small/medium fits up to 36" bust; large/xtralarge fits up to 44" bust

Thank you for choosing to knit and crochet Kristin Omdahl patterns!
I know that you have thousands of choices for buying yarn and body care products. I want you to know what makes MY products special, and feel good about shopping the Kristin Omdahl brand.
Kristin Omdahl products have a heart! That’s right, a portion of every sale supports the charity I established: Project Kristin Cares.
I am a survivor of domestic violence, a hugely hidden problem in our society. You, or someone you know, has been affected by it, or is still suffering now. Statistics show that 1 in 3 women, and 1 in 4 men have been victims of domestic violence during their lifetimes.
But because it is so rarely discussed, I always felt like I was alone. One of the worst parts for me was that feeling of loneliness and having a dirty secret that had to be hidden.
Through my charity, Project Kristin Cares, we can make a difference in the lives of people who have been affected by domestic violence. I want to share the message that victims are not at fault, not alone and should not be embarrassed to share their stories.
Kristin Omdahl products are beautiful, thoughtful and valuable. But even more importantly, every time you purchase a product from my company, a portion of the sale supports
Project Kristin Cares. Please help me knock out domestic violence, one sale at a time.
xoxo, Kristin
