Alluvial Fan Capelet Pattern Download
Design by Laura Bellows
8.5 x 11 inch format, full color, instructions on back
The Alluvial Fan Capelet is inspired by a geologic formation in which a fan-shaped deposit of sediment forms when fast-flowing water emerges from a narrow stream or canyon into an open plain. There the water slows creating a fanning series of ridges of settled sedimentary material and eroding water channels. The Capelet is knit side to side with a series of "channels" in stockinette and ridges in reverse stockinette.
JUL Venetian Hinges (pictured), Florentine Hinges, Locks, Latches or Mod Loops may be used to create the Capelet closure either on the side, as pictured, or in the front.
This project takes 630 yards color A and 630 yards color B worked on US7 needles
