A Gothic Windows lace pattern adorns this shimmering little shawl.
"This capelet features a classic lace stitch which is surprisingly easy to knit," says Judy Furlong. "It forms its own scalloped edge at the cast-on edge - but be sure to use a stretchy cast-on method to allow this to happen."
The capelet is worked from the bottom up, decreasing in circumference gradually to the shoulders. "It is fairly gently shaped, so choose your size according to how you would like the garment to sit - a smaller size if you just want it to cover your shoulders, or a larger size if you would like more fabric to wrap yourself in for those chillier summer evenings," says Judy.
The Gothic Vines Stole, designed by Warren Agee, is a timeless piece you'll want to wear again and again. The lace patterns are beautifully defined by luxurious Camel-Hair.

Cocoon yourself in this cosy wrap, knitted in a soft and airy alpaca yarn which shows off the cables.
"The design for this wrap came after testing many double cable patterns," says Nicki Merrall. "I was curious about what would happen if the orientation of each pair of cables was random rather than planned. I tried tossing a coin, and whenever I threw 'heads' I worked a C4F, C4B, and 'tails' I worked C4B, C4F. The result is an interesting cable pattern - and of course, there are so many possible combinations of 'heads' and 'tails' that most people knitting this will create a unique wrap."
