Fancy capelet for Suzi

Pattern from the Lion Brand website
Lion Brand Fun Fur in black and Chenille Thick 'n Quick in black
Completed October 2005

This was for my friend Suzi's 30th birthday in November. I made it in all black for a more sophisticated look. The pattern turned out a little wonky though; if I made it again, I'd make the furry part with the exact same instructions as the lining. It was a little off and as you can see in the second picture, Mom and I used some quilt binding to make a secure top edge so the whole thing wouldn't slip and fall off one's shoulders.

Notice one of Mom and Dad's bad kitties in the top photo...I think he thought I was knitting another cat. He kept trying to walk on it and rub against it, and finally after we removed him, he walked over and viciously bit the ribbon.
