Peg loom addiction

Again with the peg loom weaving!

This time, a capelet. Since it was an experiment/prototype, I used a commercial cotton blend yarn that I've had for several years. Also, I was impatient. I had this idea, and didn't want to wait until I had spun up that much yarn to see if it would work. Also, spring is here, (despite the winter storm watch we're under for the weekend), so cotton seemed like a good idea. Here's the back.

Perfect to cover the arms on a cool summer night. Or to protect yourself from overzealous air conditioning, or heck even the refrigerated section of the grocery store.

This is lovely, Annie! I would wear it, for sure!

What pattern did you follow?

This is so sweet!

Clare, I didn't follow a pattern. I had an idea, experimented, and it worked. I am pleased.

Thanks Linda Sue!

So pretty. OK. How's about a shawl or bolero? How versatile is it?

It would make a lovely, soft bed jacket for someone confined to bed, too. Perfect for the warmth they would need around their shoulders.
