The Biedermier period in Germany was concurrent with Regency/Georgian in England and Empire in France. A hallmark of this elegant style was a convergence of lines that created naturalistic ornamentation. By working several rows of simple decorative chain embroidery around the edges and along the fronts and collar of this cape, the knitter can mimic the same effect.
Even if one has never used a crochet hook, this technique can be mastered quickly. Even better, the vines can easily be ripped out and re-crocheted. The colorwork flowers provide anchoring points to make the embroidery repetition easier to work in a measured fashion. This capelet is designed to fit the shoulders and to easily drape down to the elbows. The refined cut of this garment allows full movement while retaining subtle elegance as well as comfortable warmth.
