The solid portion of the airy & colorful Swing Capelet, crocheted in Taiyo Lace yarn, is formed by a wide, short band worked flat in a cluster stitch pattern. The ends are fastened at the lower back with hook-and-eye closures, forming an open-back bolero; the lace cape is worked down from the center back in picot lace mesh.
