Blunt Darning Needle
You could call it a capelet. Or a poncho. Or a cowl. It’s the perfect touch of warmth for all seasons. Scrunch it up around your neck when you put your coat on—slip it down over your shoulders when you get there. Or pleat the neck with a pretty pin. It knits up in an evening—and we know someone who’s made eight of them!
Note: As this piece stretches to fit around your shoulders, it shortens in length. For broader shoulders, you may want to increase the length of the first section before decrease rounds; this may require more yarn.
