Pretty in Pink

Pretty in pink, but it looks great in all the colors! This capelet starts at the neck and is worked down. After several rows of raglan increases that widen the piece, cast on the button(hole) bands & keep going. The easy lace pattern used to edge the bottom border is also used on the collar. Sew on some buttons, and ta-da! A cozy cape!
