This design is inspired by the green lotus leaves floating on ponds, muddy swamps, and marshlands.
The capelet/skirt is circular in shape with a slit that looks like a lotus leaf. The increase lines on the pattern mimic the reticulate venation of the lotus leaf.
So Many Ways
The design is versatile in that it can be worn as a capelet or a short skirt. The capelet can be fastened at the neck using the I-Cord ties, or even buttoned down on the front or to a side. The design can also be worn as a skirt, by kids, teens, or adults. You can knit a longer capelet or skirt by working an extra rep or two of the lace border.
