Familiar elements taken from lace doilies give this pretty crocheted cover-up a vintage appeal. It has a ¾ round shape, rather like a pie with a wedge missing. When captured under the arm and buttoned in front it becomes a sleeved capelet with a lovely, slight ruffled edge. You may also leave the sides unattached to wear as a shawl.
