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!
Vintage Peach is a light and airy one skein crochet triangle shawl. The pattern is simplicity at its best! Once you have the first few rows established, it is an easy make. When you have completed your shawl, it is the essential blocking that turns it into this beautiful delicate creation! Add a touch of cream for the edging, and you have a Vintage inspired crochet accessory to be proud of. The pattern is very versatile and you can use any yarn you wish. A DK weight yarn (Light Worsted) and a suitable crochet hook, would also be perfect for a fast project and would make a cozy scarf/shawl for winter. You just stop crocheting when your shawl is large enough, or you run out of yarn. Add a contrast border or make your shawl in a single colour.

I originally designed this shawl for Simply Crochet magazine quite a number of years ago (way back for issue 8!) and am so pleased to share it with you now. It's effortlessly easy to wear and I love it so much I have a few in different colours! It consists of 5 lace panels in different sizes that are edged, then joined, followed by a delicate edging around the whole thing and then finally a big old fringe at each short end to finish. It sounds complicated but I promise it's much easier than it seems.
