Here’s a lovely gift idea that doesn’t require an exact fit. Crochet shell stitches are combined with shaded yarn for the perfect shoulder warming capelet.

GAUGE: 2 small shells + 2 sc = 4”; 4 rows = 3½” in pattern with smallest hook. Note: Measure gauge over a swatch or in first few rows only, as work progresses, shells are stretched altering gauge. CHECK YOUR GAUGE. Use any size hook to obtain the gauge.
