GAUGE:
12 sts + 16 rows = 4” (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.

STITCH EXPLANATION:
Double increase (DI) K 1, insert left needle into row below in back of stitch just knit, knit this additional stitch, insert right needle into row below in back of next stitch on left needle and knit this new stitch, knit the stitch on left needle.

NOTES:
Capelet is cast on at the bottom edge and worked back and forth on a circular needle up to the neck.

The center front seam is sewn leaving the collar open.
