RIPPLE CAPELET

Thank you Virginia for testing this pattern.

Virginia and I have been working on shawls and now capelets to send to Elders at Pine Ridge Reservation this fall.




Notes:
1. Read instructions all the way through before beginning.
2. Capelet in photo is crocheted of Red Heart Super Saver – Orchid
3. If you choose to change colors, complete the last pull through of the last stitch with the new color. Then tie a square knot and using your tapestry needle weave the old color in and out of the back loop of the previous row. You can pull the old color enough to hide the knot inside the dc dec of the previous row. After crocheting several stitches use your tapestry needle to weave the new color in and out of the back loop of this row. Or use your preferred method.

Special Stitches:
Dc dec over 2 (decrease) =
Yo and draw up a loop in next dc, yo and draw through 2 loops, yo and draw up a loop in next dc, yo and draw through 2 loops, yo and draw through all 3 loops on hook.

Dc dec over 3 (decrease) = Yo and draw up a loop in next dc, yo and draw through 2 loops, skip next dc, yo and draw up a loop in next dc, yo and draw through 2 loops, yo and draw through all 3 loops on hook.

Picot = Ch 3, slipstitch in 3rd ch from hook.

Just beautiful! I just love the ripple pattern for anything. Thank you so much for your wonderful patterns!
 
this is exactly what I've been looking for to make for Mom! Thank you so much!
 
this is so perfect for the
seniors at our County Home!
I love it and can't wait to
get started. Thank you so
very much for sharing the
pattern :) crochet hugs,

I'm always delighted to hear people are using my patterns for giving to others.
 
I love the capelet but your pattern doesn't state what the finished size will be, sm, med, lg. Knowing that will enable me to adjust up or down depending on who it's being made for. Have so many of your patterns. You're so talented---and prolific.
 
It is an average size.
 
Made this Cape and found it to be very nice. The ties gave me a problem until I discovered I need ed to make 2 of them. It is very nice and I enjoyed the pattern. Thank you. I'm making it for a nursing home in Mississippi. I hope they enjoy it. I didn't see any comments from men. I enjoy cocheting. Its a great hobby.

You rock!

It pleases me to read people are using my patterns for donations. Both of my sons know how to crochet, but haven't done any in a few years.
 
This looks to be an adult med also. Could you help me in adjusting for a child's ? I guess I could start with the neck and down-sizing. It calls for 54 stitches so in multiples of what ? I just think it is so cute I would love to try to size it down to fit my Granddaugters. I so appreciate your assistance.
 
You could use the ripple poncho that Coast and Clark has on their site and turn instead of joining.
 
This is such a beautiful pattern! I am currently making this in black for myself, as I need something dressy and versatile to drape over my shoulders on cooler evenings.
 
Thank you for the great pattern. I made mine with ties at first then for a friend paralyzed from a stroke I used a big button and loop: easy to fasten with one hand.
