Yesterday saw the release of Brunswick, the second pattern in the Head to Toe collection. I am very excited about this capelet / shawlette. I wanted to capture Jess in the design, her quirky vintage style is the inspiration behind the entire collection. The tricky bit was I needed to get a functional piece from a single skein. I think I did it with a stylish flair, hopefully you agree.
Brunswick is knitted from the top down, featuring cable details along the front panels and a feather and fan style lace border. The edging is finished with a pretty looped picot bind off. The capelet can be worn wrapped around your shoulders and secured with the button and i-cord fastening, or you could use a pretty shawl pin or brooch.
The capelet uses a single skein of Delight, a high twist 100% Merino 4 ply with 365m / 400 yes per 100g.
To celebrate the launch of Brunswick I will be giving blog readers a 30% discount on this pattern for the for the next 24 hours. Just use the code brunswickblog30 at the Ravelry check out. The pattern will cost £2.45 with this discount code.

Don’t forget about the KAL in the group where we will be knitting all the Head to Toe patterns until the end of October. There are lots of fun prizes to win and a really friendly bunch of knitters to chat to.
Have a wonderful weekend.
