Quiver Capelette – a free crochet patter to dress up your wardrobe!

This post may contain affiliate links. If you purchase something from one of these links I will be compensated. Thank you.

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!

  1. Hi

    I really love the Quiver Capelette. I was wondering if you have a video giving instructuion on how to make this pattern on youtube?

    • Sure, but you’d have to do some math and such. I’d try by figuring out how much longer it needs to be and adding that many of the tallest stitches to each row. It won’t continue to get wider that way, but it will get longer.

      • I’m sorry that I’m such a question asker. I have only made furniture arm covers and foot rests as my first project. For my second project, I’ve made two hats for my sister-in-law with fourth stage cancer. This is only my third project. In the previous comments before my question, you say to add 10 stitches to each row. At each of the 5 stitch size levels, would it work to make it longer if each stitch type is 20 stitches long? Would that work to make the length lip level? and how can I widen it to full circle? Any ideas, Jessie? Thanks for your response.

        • What you’re asking for is a complete re-write for a new pattern. I can put it on my request list, as I do think it would be cool. If you want this level of help I suggest finding someone local who can sit with you and help you alter the pattern, or finding someone who will do it on zoom. This is not a type back and forth kind of alteration. Try calling your local yarn shop and seeing if they can help or know someone who can.
