Wildwood Capelet - New Crochet pattern and tutorial



The new Wildwood Capelet is a shawl-style capelet with a rounded hood in soft and chunky crochet. The hood has a rounded design and utilizes a special technique that is described below.

I'm including this video tutorial to demonstrate my version of a flat braid join in crochet. It's a technique that is often used to join granny squares, but I have interpreted it here for the purpose of joining the back of the hood for my Wildwood Capelet pattern. (Not a professional video, but I think it clearly demonstrates how to create the stitch while joining.)
This hood pattern also utilizes the DcCh (Double Crochet Chain) or Foundationless Double Crochet as described in an earlier post http://lazytcrochet.blogspot.com/2013/06/foundationless-double-crochet-tutorial.html


The pattern for the Wildwood Capelet is available in my Etsy shop, as well as on Craftsy and Ravelry. © 2012 LazyTcrochet
