Anthropologie Inspired Capelet

The wildtomato household has been a beehive of activity. Most importantly, my little brother, tofuninja, tied the knot! I was a bridesmaid in their wedding, and in honor of this momentous occasion, I knit myself a capelet to go with my dress.

Photo credits go to Milka at Lightbulb in the Sky Photography. Thanks, Milka! You're so very talented, and my brother's wedding is going to be forever remembered by through your creative interpretation.

Knitting this raglan, top down capelet has given me the confidence to make myself a full blown sweater. It was so easy! And the whole "try it on as you go" thing was a treat. And, the yarn! Oh, and I get gushy whenever I think about the yarn! Sublime makes super squishy goodness, and I'll buy more of their extra fine merino in a heartbeat.

The Dirty Details
Pattern: Anthropologie Inspired Capelet by Peony Knits
Yarn: 3.75 balls of Sublime Yarns Extra Fine Merino Wool DK, colorway Milk
Needles: Hiyahiya interchangeable circulars, US Size 7 (love, love, LOVE them!)

More dirty details on my Ravelery page.


  1. I'm impressed by both your knitting ability and Milka's photography (LOVE the first photo)

    And congrats on tofuninja's wedding.

    I just remembered when I saw him at your wedding and I said "congratulations". He said, "why, I'm not the one getting married" ... Made me laugh but something got lost in the cultural translation there. We congratulate the newlyweds' entire family back home.

  2. Congratulations to tofuninja! And ooo la la, what a beauty of a capelet. And look, there's beautiful you, too!

  3. Excellent Caplet! Beautiful.
