Little Whiskey PDF


Little Whiskey is not quite a shawl and not quite a poncho. This capelet design will keep your shoulders warm and stay securely in place (thanks to the buttons) all while allowing your arms their full range of movement. It’s a dainty little covering with substance that can be worn year-round. Don it on cool summer nights over a sundress or camisole top or in the office when the air conditioning is a touch too cool. Try Little Whiskey in the Fall when you only need a touch of something to stay warm, or in the Winter for a shot of warmth indoors. In the Spring Little Whiskey will dress up the clothes you’re eager to wear before it’s actually warm enough to do so.

If you enjoy top-down raglans then you’ll love knitting Little Whiskey. This design utilizes top-down raglan construction to form its shape over the shoulders. There is absolutely no sewing required, except for fastening on the two little buttons. Blocking your finished piece will open the 1×1 ribbing edging and keep it from pulling in over your arms.

Pattern includes written and charted instructions for the lace panels.
