::Darling capelet::

A friend commissioned me to make a gift for a little girl's upcoming third birthday. When contemplating my options, I came across Prudent Baby's adorable reversible capelet. I thought this looked like a fun wardrobe addition a little girl could wear to feel "fancy," in addition to being practical for cool fall/spring evenings.

I love that once you understand the pattern/idea, you can alter it to your heart's content. The ties can be done with ribbon, straps, Velcro, etc. I stuck with the tutorial for my first one and it turned out pretty well, I think! I'll definitely be making one of these for Miss H for next summer. I'd love to make a longer, super hero-type version for a little boy!
