Capelet for the Best Mom in the World!

I wanted to make a smart shawl/cape/poncho for my Mom as a Birthday gift. After trawling the world wide web, I found this absolutely stunning Spring Capelet Pattern on Ravelry by Merri Purdy. 
What I particularly loved about this pattern was that it looked really smart and as my Mom is a professor I thought it would really suit her. In addition, it used the Caron Cake yarn which I had been meaning to try for a while.

I used two yarns for this pattern Cygnet Aran in Cream and Caron Cakes in Red Velvet.

It was great fun making this pattern. Although I have to say Caron Cakes was not as soft as I had expected. I guess its just because it has wool in it. But if I had to reuse Caron Cakes I would probably use the Caron Baby Cakes which I hear is much softer.

It was a fairly straight forward and fast pattern to crochet. I loved how it turned out. I have posted it to my Mom for her Birthday I hope she has a great year ahead!

Love you Mom!
