Notes: Capelet will stretch to fit a range of sizes. Pattern is written for smallest size with changes for larger size in parentheses. When only one number is given, it applies to both sizes. To follow pattern more easily, circle all numbers pertaining to your size before beginning.

GAUGE: 16 stitches = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter stitch (knit every row) with 3 strands of A held together.

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.

With 3 strands of A held together, cast on 39 stitches. Work in Garter stitch (knit every row) until piece measures 31 (45) in. (79 (114.5) cm) from beginning. Bind off.

Sew short ends together.
