Classic Elite Yarns



Issue 511 • Hanako Capelet/Cowl

Hanako Floppy Hat

There is plenty of time left in summer to make and wear this versatile accessory that can be worn as a capelet or a cowl. Worked entirely in Stockinette stitch from the bottom up, the smaller needles are used for a few rounds at the edges with a larger needle making the loose and lacy fabric in beween. A super quick knit, this summery piece works up in a flash.

Cotton and Linen combine for a summery yarn in a popular worsted weight. The linen fiber has a subtle sheen and adds body; cotton adds stitch definition and softness. This yarn gets even softer the more it’s worn and the light and vibrant palette is perfect for warm weather wear. The generous yardage per hank makes Hanako a good value.
