A friend asked me to make a little capelet for her daughter to wear for her first communion. I couldn’t find a pattern anywhere, then I tried to adapt an adult pattern, and then finally decided to make my own using Lily of the Valley lace and winging it. It turns out that her favorite flower is Lily of the Valley and that she planned to have her daughter hold a sprig on the day of, so it must have been fate.
I used Angora Extra from Little Knits–so soft . The neck will be tied with a ribbon going through the eyelets.
It’s laying out blocking now, and I’ll have one of the boys pose with it when it’s dry since there aren’t any little girls around. :teehee: I’ll probably have to come up with a good bribe.
