Crochet Icy Blue Capelet Shawl
This Icy Blue Capelet Shawl is crocheted using a gorgeous light blue wool blend that is 12ply or bulky in weight. The capelet has a lovely feel to it as it has repeated rows of working in the front loop only and then working in the back loop only which creates textured ridges in the capelet. I also topped my crochet Icy Blue Capelet Shawl by adding a large white button to the front of the capelet which I think goes nicely with the light blue yarn. As the yarn is 12ply or bulky weight it will definitely keep you nice and snuggly warm, whether you just wear it around the house or out and about.
Please find the written below, the stitch diagram and the YouTube tutorial to create and crochet this comfy, textured Icy Blue Capelet Shawl.

For a medium ch 92; 120cm or 47 inches in length and 35cm or 14 inches high (the size that I did)

Row 1: EDc 1 into 3rd ch from hook, *EDc 1 in each ch*, rep * to * along the row, turn work at end of row 1 (90 EDc)
Row 2: Ch 2 (counts as a turning ch), EDc 1 in 1st FLO st, *EDc 1 in each FLO st*, rep * to * along the row, turn work at end of row 2 (90 EDc)
Row 3: Ch 2 (counts as a turning ch), EDc 1 in 1st BLO st, *EDc 1 in each BLO st*, rep * to * along the row, turn work at end of row 2 (90 EDc)
Row 4 – 7: Repeat row 2 for every even row and repeat row 3 for every odd row.
Row 8: Ch 2 (counts as a turning ch), EDc 1 in 1st FLO st, EDc 1 in next 3 FLO sts, *ch 2, sk 2 sts, EDc 1 in next FLO st* (forms a buttonhole), *EDc 1 in each FLO st*, rep * to * along the row, turn work at end of row 8 (88 EDc)
Row 9: Ch 2 (counts as a turning ch), EDc 1 in 1st BLO, *EDc 1 in each BLO st*, EDc 2 in ch-2 sp, EDc in next 4 BLO sts, turn work at end of row 8 (90 EDc)
Row 10: Repeat row 2
Row 11: Repeat row 3
Sew the button on the opposite side of the buttonhole, right side up approx. 6 stitches inwards so that the button and buttonhole line up when worn.
This should make the capelet go down to your elbow when worn but if it doesn’t, just add more rows until the capelet reaches your elbow by repeating row 2-3. If you need to add more rows to achieve this, make sure the buttonhole is the 4th row from the top to be able to hold the capelet together without an issues. E.g. if you need to add 2 more rows, the buttonhole (from row 8) and button will be placed along row 10 and row 11 will be row 9. So rows 8-9 will just be normal FLO and BLO rows.
– Every even row is an EDc in the front loops only (FLO) and every odd row is an EDc in the back loops only (BLO)
– Working stitches in the FLO and BLO helps to form nice ridges throughout the Icy Blue Capelet Shawl
– You can adjust the size to easily fit you by chaining multiples of 2+2.
– This capelet is worked bottom to top as 1 long rectangle to cover your elbows up to your shoulders. So if you need to add more rows to achieve this, make sure the buttonhole is the 4th row from the top.
– Make sure that the starting chain can wrap both shoulders and overlap by 10cm or 4 inches for the buttonhole and button to be positioned on the capelet.
