Here are two of my recently finished crochet projects. The top one is a capelet made of Rowan Wool cotton. I based it on a shawl from one of the summer Rowan Classic books. I thought that the shawl would be too much like a blanket, and capelets seemed more stylish to me, so here is my version.
The next one is the scarf from the front cover of Hip to Crochet. The pattern called for mohair, but I used Koigu KPPM, it was great to crochet with. I hated changing colors all the time, but I think it was worth it in the end. Can't wait for the cooler weather to wear this one.
