Wow, this this is really warm on a 93 degree day! This is another Ysolda Teague design, Emily, a cute capelet/shawl with short rows to create a half-round shape. The sizing is done by doing more or less repeats of the same pattern, and I did 15, which is all I could get out of the yarn. I wanted to do one more, to decrease the amount of splay in the front, but oh well.
The yarn is Indigo Dragonfly in My Name is Indigo Montoya, and I used up all but ~5 of the 375 yards. It's a tightly spun, squishy sock yarn, pretty different from the yarn called for in the pattern (something with more fuzzy halo), but it knitted up into a nice loose fabric with a larger needles (US 7).
The buttohs are from Paste, a fairly new craft store in St Louis. (I call buttons "buttohs" in my head, kind of like how lolcats say "kitteh" instead of kitten.) It's super cute and has a great selection of all sort of different craft supplies (beading, scrapbooks, clay, roving, some yarn, etc), as well as goodies made by local artists. Oh, and there's a giant bowl of buttohs! I am partial to plain shank buttohs, so I fished them all out, and used three for this capelet.
The edging is a cable and lace combo--always a good idea!
