The Cailleach Capelet


 
I wanted to see what bobbles would be like in a capelet, and this is how the Cailleach capelet was born.  I must say I love the rich lattice effect it has. Fit for a winter goddess and that is how it got its name. For Cailleach in Gaelic Mythology is a divine hag (old woman) associated with winter, but I like the old Irish meaning of it as "a veiled one", which is an early loan from the Latin word pallium that translates to "a woolen cloak", and that sums it up perfectly. 
 
It's in my shop.

You made such a pretty shawl for your daughter Maya. I love the lacy look for it.

The Cailleach Capelet is so beautiful, Maya. I would imagine the bobbles not only look lovely but give fabulous texture. Such a clever design you have imagined.

Hi Maya, The Cailleach Capelet is gorgeous and I love how the bobbles play with the chained lattice background of the fabric.

Thank you Kim! I would love to make it in cotton as well. I am sure the drape would be even better :)
