Things have been hectic! It’s the last week of school for the term, and I’ve been cluing up projects and papers…
But I hate neglecting my blog – blogging makes me happy! So I just had to make time for a post.
Over the past few weeks I’ve been working on this knitted caplet for my wedding (at the end of this month). It’s going to be pretty cold, and we want some outdoor photos. So I figured I needed something cute and cozy. Enter knitted caplet. Here’s how I did it:
I started with a chunky, loopy wool, and size 13 circular needles. I cast on 80 stitches, and just knit in the round until the tube was about 18″ long. (If you’re curious about knitting, but don’t know where to start, check out iKnits on youtube, or her blog – she has a great videos / knit-alongs for everything!)
Then, bunch one part of the scarf together, wrap a ribbon around that section, and sew the ribbon into place. I added a satin flower to the wrapped-ribbon-section to dress it up a little. (You can check out the blog post where I made the satin flowers here.)
Done! It took a little bit of time, but it was pretty straight forward. Love how it turned out!
