The Rose Finch Capelet is a vintage lace poncho that is light, airy, and the perfect accessory for warmer Spring and Summer seasons! Its design features a delicate boat-shaped neckline followed by a feminine body portion using a simple and fun two-row stitch repeat. It crocheted in joined rounds, and a relatively quick and easy project that beginners familiar with the stitches used can tackle without any trouble. Using soft cotton bamboo yarn or a cotton blend, it features a relaxed and beautiful drape with the illusion of sleeves. The lace and bottom edging portion makes this a more “dressy” looking shawl that will be sure to garner compliments. It can be worn similar to a wrap or shrug, and adds a lovely touch of color and texture to any outfit. Crochet this beautiful capelet as a gift for someone special, or for yourself!
