It isn't hard to tell when I like a pattern, because I make one for everybody and their cousin, whether they like it or not. This ribbed capelet definitely falls into the category of "knit now, figure out who it's going to later" projects. ;)
The first of these capelets was made for my friend, Mrs. P, last winter, and was modeled by my Livy-doo.
My most recent capelet was for young Miss. HB, who was gracious enough to model it for me. :)
I sort of inadvertently made two capelets in my attempt to make Miss. HB's one. Effort #1 was waaaaay to small, but by the time I realized that not even the give of ribbing would make it work, I was already halfway done. So I went ahead and finished it, and gave it to another lil' buddy of mine. Now she & HB are a matched set. :)
I have this project up on Ravelry, if you'd like to read more of my rambling notes or follow the link to the original pattern, check it out here.
Next up is a modified version of this capelet, more of a cape, really, for Miss HB's little brother.
