Pink lady knits

Anthropologie Capelet

Pattern: Anthropologie Style Capelet
Yarn: Patons Shetland Chunky Tweed
Needles: #11 Clover Bamboo Circulars

Notes: I've wanted to knit one of these for a while. The pattern is so simple, and really relaxing to knit. When I pulled it out of the depths of my knitting bag I realized that I'd printed it right when I started knitting, because it had all of these little notes over it that said things like "BO=Bind Off". I was so innocent then!

I added on these pom-pom ties, and I'm really glad I did. I was inspired by Sally (HelloMyNameIsSal on Ravelry) and her beautiful Noro version. She admits that her ties with poms were a "mistake", but I say they are one of the best looking mistakes I've seen in a while.
This is my entry for the Ravelympics Sweater Sprint, and I'm very proud that I managed this and all of my WIP's...it's quite an accomplishment!

I'm glad yours fits- and it's beautiful, by the way! Mine is wayyy too tight- doesn't even meet in the middle. I'm still trying to find someone to give it to! :-/

I love how this looks! I may have to put it on my queue... I'm not too far from needing instructions on what BO means!
