Little Fur Capelet Knitting Pattern

January 1, 2012 /
capelet knitting pattern


Over the Christmas holiday, while having a good time with friends and families, I managed to knit another quick project. I knitted this little fur capelet with the eyelash novelty yarn again since I still have some after the Slouchy Beanie Hat.

Couldn’t believe that this yarn is quite economical to use. I bought 4 skeins, after the hat and this little fur capelet, I still have 1 1/2 skein left in my stash. With less than US$9 (in material cost), I made 2 projects with this yarn, wow, that’s amazing.

This shoulder warmer little fur capelet can be done pretty fast and all you need to know is knit (K), purl (P) and knit 2 stitches together (K2tog).

I was able to finish this fur capelet in about 2 hours while watching TV. I designed the fur capelet in 2 sizes, a little girl or kid-size, and an adult size. You can make a pair to get a mother/daughter set.

Before proceeding to the knitting pattern, I would like to wish all my readers and fans out there a very “Happy New Year” and all the best in coming years. May you have a good start for the new year that makes you happy everyday!!! When there is love there will always be joy, peace, and hope!!!

I, too, have a ten year old in mind for this sweet shrug. Any help in a mid range number of stitches would be so helpful, so it will turn out right....anyone help?

Thank you! Your daughter is so cute...how nice to have willing model!

Hi, I love this but my grand daughter is past the toddler stage but at age 10 I can not make the adult size for her. Are there a certain no. of stitches to start with to make a formula for the size? Like divisible by 9 etc etc.

Thank you

I do not have other size on the fur shrug since I only made 2 sizes, 1 for adult and 1 for toddler. You may adapt the patterns for sizes in between.

Hello, I am from Queensland Australia & would like to know if this shrug patter can be done in non fur yarn & would it be about a 12ply yarn or 8 ply to use 8mm needles. Can the length of garment be extended or would it throw it all out? Many thanks in advance Heather Brown.

This shrug is best done with fur yarn because it is a loose-knit. I haven't done it with 8 - 12 ply yarn but I could imagine that it will be thick. Yes, you could extended the length by repeating the increment stitch at intervals.

I love this pattern, but I cannot find the right yarn. Can you make any suggestions or substitutions? Thank you Linda Prieur

Hi Linda, there are some brands in the market that you may find something similar, for example, Lion Brand's Fan Fur yarn. Happy knitting :)
