Opera II


Waiting for her young lover Roméo, Juliette stands at her window. She is wearing a double-layered capelet to cover her shoulders against the cool of the evening.

Evking the romanticism of Gounod’s opera, Roméo et Juliette, this piece combines both lace and textured stitches. Each layer is worked from the bottom up, with regular decreases that shape the bell-like fluted edging.

It is long enough to be worn as a capelet around the shoulders or wrapped twice, as a scarf, around the neck.

The sample pictured is knit with Fleece Artist Woolie Silk 3-Ply, 65% wool, 35% silk, (230 m./252 yds. per 100 g. skein), colour “Sangria”, size Medium/Large.
