    It’s the colour that has really nabbed me on this one, and how much fun it would be to schnuggle into this for the walk to school/work in the morning. But really, it’s that berry-ish purple. yum.

  2. latenac

    This would be perfect for my new office where it’s chilly in the morning and layers are helpful for when the sun beats in in the afternoon. Love the color.

  3. Catrina

    I still had to wear winter gear to walk the dog this morning, I definitely could use a chunky knit 🙂

  4. Ginny

    Wow! Knitting this would be such fun and very different from my current project of lace socks on 2.25 mm needles. The yarn looks yummy.

  5. Gwen

    Wow, that is so cute. I’ve never worked with needles above a US size 7 before. It would be fun!

  6. Michele

    What an unbelievable design – wearing it would make you feel like you were on “the red carpet”.

  7. Deb from Kingston, Ontario

    Wow! I love that colourway! And I would love an opportunity to make it.

  8. Dawn

    Wow, the color is absolutely beautiful. I can wear this on Easter morning since I suspect it will still be cold here too!

  9. Sandy

    I didn’t think I’d ever see a capelet that really caught my eye, but this one does! Between the adorable style and the mouth-watering color, it’s a winner.

    lovely! Knitting up some bulky merino silk seems like a sumptuous way to keep my fingers warm while I’m waiting for spring weather to arrive.

  11. Rebecca M

    My area might get a foot of snow tonight/tomorrow. I will need new warm things for months at this rate.

  12. Cass Dodge

    So feminine and wonderfully scrumptious looking yarn, I just love the cool looking hues of this silk blend 🙂

  13. Dari Trout

    How awesome is that!?! Just the thing for when it is still a little cool, but you don’t want a jacket. Count me in!

  14. Bridget

    We’re looking at more snow here too *sigh*
    This is a great giveaway to help wait for spring!

  15. Zeeknits

    Love this! If I win I will knit for my 6’1″ daughter-in-law who is drop dead gorgeous.

  16. Jess O.

    So fancy. I love it. Sadly still cold here and such garments are still sorely needed.

  17. Sandy

    Yes, where I am winter is fighting the change also. I love the purple colour and the elegant look to this capelet with the frills. Thank you for this giveaway!

  18. Elisabeth

    Bonjour and thanks for this give-away.
    I would knit the ruffles round the neck and the ribbing on the shoulders…

  19. Heather

    The colors are so rich and deep, and it would certainly be a pattern that would keep my top half warm on those strange spring days to come.

  20. Beth Rudo

    That capelet is gorgeous! I want it in that very color, even. Such an attractive pattern.

  21. GK Green

    I do want to win a cozy capelet kit, and I know what to do … In fact I’m doing it now!

    Thanks for another great giveaway,

    Great idea. Although it’s already more like summer now, winter will come back some day here in Germany.

  25. Matthew

    This capelet would keep my wife’s shoulders warm in this year’s never ending Chicago winter! And, I’ve never knit with size 17 needles. What’s the metric measurement on those?!

  26. asteride

    I visit this blog once in a while and then BOING! there are these great giveaways that remind you how wonderful Knitty and knotty blog are! Thank you!

  27. mollysusie

    Wow, that is amazing! Although the ruffled section looks a little tricky… Thanks so much for the giveaway!

  28. Marsha

    Even though we’re (finally!) getting springlike weather here on the East Coast, I can always start planning for NEXT winter with this . . .
