Intermediate Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot
This design has been in my head for quite some time. I would go back and forth on how to make it, and then I held the Willow Quiver in my hands and it came to me! I am very pleased with the results. The Quiver Capelette uses different height stitches for shaping, and back loop slip stitches for the ribbing at the neck, plus some chain loops for a fun detail. Enjoy!

Fasten off and weave in all ends.
Block piece, either steam block or wet block. I wet blocked the sample using Unicorn Fibre Rinse. The finished piece is very soft and does not irritate my neck.
Add buttons opposite of the button holes, and close to the edge of piece.
