Abbreviations: CO=cast on; K=knit; P=purl; BO=bind off; RS=right side; WS=wrong side; sc=single crochet; dc=double crochet.

Row: Break off Ozark Handspun yarn and with remaining strand of Ozark pencil roving, very loosely bind off. Fasten off and bury end.
Crocheted Edging: Using US size Q crochet hook and with wide edge of capelet facing you, attach Ozark Handspun at the corner edge. Chain 2, *dc into next stitch, dc twice into next stitch, repeat from * across to end. This will create a collar for your capelet.
Leaving yarn attached, sc into each stitch around the two edges remaining to finish off. Fasten off and bury ends. Use a recycled pin of your choice to ace as a closure.
