Crochet Capelet Patterns

Crochet capelets toe the line between a shawl and a poncho. They often drape over your head like a poncho, but they're shorter, so they feel more like a shawl in terms of coverage. A cape crochet pattern can be a stunning addition to a formal outfit during winter, and they also look lovely as an accessory year round. Browse the collection of lovely capelets below.
