A Perfect Spring Capelet

The Tribeca Capelet is a perfect transition piece to take you from spring, to summer nights, to fall (and it’s a quick knit, too)! With only 4 balls of a lovely Merino-silk blend striated tape yarn, this fashion-forward piece is a delight to both knit and wear.

The Tribeca Capelet: Knitting + Fashion

We love Takhi Stacy Charles! And we’re crazy about one of their newest designs, the Tribeca Capelet. It’s the perfect transition piece from summer to fall, and a quick knit, too (only 4 balls required)! It’s knit in Phoebe–a lovely Merino-silk blend striated tape yarn.

We’ve had the privilege of meeting Stacy Charles a few times–not only is he an inspired designer, but he’s a wonderful person, too. We love following his designs and always can’t wait to see what he comes up with next! Read about his inspirations–the places where fashion and fibre meet–here.

And be sure to follow the Tahki Stacy Charles blog here for the latest in design inspiration and more!
