Capelets, cowls, and collars are as chic as they are fun to make. But until Knit & Wrap, there have been few books that focus exclusively on these popular accessories. For this designer collection, Nathalie Mornu has chosen 25 varied projects that range from dramatic to sensible, bold to dainty, sassy to romantic - something for every style and mood.
Wear a capelet and you’ll want to shrug or flounce often, drawing all eyes on you. Whether it’s a spectacular cabled number with an antique brooch closure or a fairy tale showstopper featuring woven ribbons galore, these projects exude sophistication. Cowls can either snuggle up under the chin or venture further, draping around the shoulders. The projects in this section easily capture attention with spectacular details. Collars are trims and embellishments that fit close to the neck. Get pretty in a wide cabled wool beauty with a flirty look or a multi-coloured dazzler edged with crocheted eyelash yarn. With Knit & Wrap, you’ll soon discover how just a little bit of fabric can convey so much.
