FO: Anthropologie-Inspired Capelet

There seems to be a rash of them going around :)

It's a bit shorter than the others I've seen, but I was going for a shawtie.

It's made in Caron Simply Soft Quick, in the color Orchid. It's very plushy and warm (I'm wearing it right now, and my apartment is freezing...but I'm not!). It took maybe 8 hours to make, and that includes ripping out mistakes and, at one point, lengthening it.

I still need to find a brooch for it. I have no brooches! Shame! So for the picture, I strung a button through a safety pin and used that. Maybe I'll just sew the button on.

Oops! I forgot to post the link to the pattern: Here. As you can see, she called it a "capelet," so that is why we've been calling it a "capelet" and not a "shrug."
