The river's mood in winter is subdued and muted. Colours ranging from greys to blues, with a hint of winter berries along its banks, evoke the river in winter.
Worked from the bottom up in a bulky weight yarn, this capelet is knit quickly in a chevron stitch pattern. The side slit allows for freedom of movement while still wrapping the body for comfort and warmth.
Wear the capelet over a jacket or heavy woolen sweater—with the vent at the side or to the front or back--and you will be ready to walk the winter path along the river's edge.
