Thank you for all your color suggestions for my throw. I’m still not sure about the color I’ll choose, but I hope to finish the circles in the next day or two, so a decision must be made. Ill keep you posted!
Yesterday, whilst scouring through my stash to see what yarn I had, I came across six balls of bulky yarn I’d purchased a couple of years ago. Languishing. Not suitable for a throw. But so squishy and soft. Pleading with me to crochet them.
You need a capelet…
Use 12ply yarn and a 10mm hook.
Chain 90 (or a chain long enough to stretch around your arms). Join to form a circle, taking care to not twist your chain. Work in rounds (do not join after each round), use a stitch marker to keep track.
Rounds 1 – 16: Sc in each stitch around (or until the capelet is the desired length between top of arm and elbow).
Round 17: Sc 2 together (decrease) x 4, Sc in the next 37 stitches, Sc 2 together x 4, Sc in next 37.
Round 18: Sc 2 together x 4, Sc in the next 33 stitches, Sc 2 together x 4, Sc in next 33.
Round 19: Sc 2 together x 4, Sc in the next 29 stitches, Sc 2 together x 4, Sc in next 29.
Round 20: Sc in each stitch around.
Round 21: Sc next 1, Sc 2 together, repeat around.
Round 22: Sc in next 4, Sc 2 Together, repeat around.
Round 23 – 30: Sc in each stitch around.
Round 31: Sc in next 4, 2Sc in next (increase), repeat around.
Round 32 – 35: Sc in each stitch around. Fasten off and weave in all ends.
Put on, and enjoy your cozy shoulders!
