The cape is knitted in one piece - from the top down - like a giant yoke. Although the increases are worked with simple yarnovers, the texture of the chenille yarn hides the resulting eyelets. The capelet can be worn with the opening in front, back, or on the side. You can order the buttons used here from Veronik's favorite button shop in Montreal or seek out something vintage. The scarf is separate - wear it or not.
