Shirley Paden never fails to combine stitch pattern and silhouette in pleasing harmony: this time in an elegant sweater-and-capelet duo. For the fitted, feminine under-sweater, she has used a delicate chevron lace pattern in a classic round yoke pullover. Tuck stitches add texture to the yoke and graceful, belled sleeves fall over the wrists. For added drama, Shirley gave the sweater a matching shoulder-hugging capelet, also worked in the round in a tuck-stitch pattern. In a light, alpaca yarn, the sweater and capelet are lofty and warm.
