Caplet Redux

Posted by 2ton Inspired on January 31, 2008

first sweater 09 2006 (small)

My first official wearable knit was this caplet. The pattern is the infamous Anthropology Inspired Caplet by Peony Knits. For a first garment it wasn’t so bad. I learned how to do some simple calculations to make it fit me. I learned how a raglan sweater is constructed. The only bummer was that the two skeins of Caron Simply Soft pink didn’t match in color.

It was a little sad to frog but I knew it was for the better. It also meant that the pattern would go untouched for years. Not because I didn’t want to make it but because I needed time to forget the pain from ripping my first garment. Who would have thought I’d use the yarn from my second ripped garment (Drops 103-1) to make the sweater from my first? Not me!

I wanted something fairly easy that would look good with the yarn (Bernat Alpaca Silk) and saw a very pretty version of the caplet with the same yarn on Ravelry. I plan on making it longer with quarter (or full) sleeves and a collar. I CO for it last night and am a good 6 inches in.

Hopefully these two failures will create something lovely.
