If you watched my video a couple of weeks ago showing the slideshow of my cowls and capelets then you might have spotted the debut of my two-toned convertible cowl capelets. Sto amando veramente fare e indossa questi, così ho voluto condividerli in più dettaglio qui.

About The Crochet Convertible Cowl Capelet
What I love about this design is that the item can be worn in lots of different ways (which I’ve tried to show here). I have several feathers and fascinators that can be worn not only in the hair but also as pins and that’s what I use to pin the cowl capelet closed in different ways. This open design leaves a lot more flexibility for the wearer than if I had chosen to close it off. Basically to make this I just do ribbed circles or hexagons, one in each color, and then I stitch them together for about ten stitches (and that’s the part that goes behind my neck). I love the two tone design, especially because when the item is worn as a cowl then you can control which color shows more.
