Reminiscent of the varied deep greens and browns of the boreal forest, this capelet with raglan-style shaping will grace the shoulders and warm the neck.
Worked from the top down in a feathery lace pattern evoking the needles of pine and spruce, this piece can be modified to include a longer cowl neck or adapted for a simple crew neck.
