Another FO: Anthropologie-inspired capelet

I had these 2 balls of DMC Senso that my sister in law brought from US. I did not know what to do with it since it was only 2 balls. So, I made Anthropologie-inspired capelet. I know..I know…probably you are bored looking at it since everybody else already made this item. Actually this is intended for me, but I run out of yarn and could not make the body long enough. So, probably my daughter will end up wearing it and she still can grow into it since it is too big for her.

Actually, I started this for sometime while I was waiting for my Addi circular needle to arrive. So, I am not a fast knitter.

This is my first experience to knit top down and no seaming to do. Too bad that I don’t have enough yarn, otherwise this would be perfect for me.

This is how it looks on me:

The colour is so rich. How about modelling it for us?

This is really cute! I can see some wear boleros as short as that, I think it looks lovely on you ;)
