Chanson en Crochet

The capelet is done!! (well, it still needs a button, and it's drying after blocking, but I'm finished crocheting it!) It was a lot of fun crocheting it with everyone at the yahoo crochet-a-long. It was my first foray into more intricate patterns with flowers etc. Let's hope the blocking shrinks the puffiness of my petals!

Now it's blocked. What do you think?

Ginny,

I love it too! The length and color are great. I belong to the crochet along too and was debating whether or not to do this one. I'm off to get yarn and start tonight. Thanks for the motivation
(and inspiration!)

I love the pattern! I would love to get involved in a crochet-a-long...any tips on where I can "hook up" with one?

Ginny, that color is just beautiful! I made one for practice out of TLC Heather Blue (about the color of the picture with the pattern). It's puffy in the flowers and poufy in places. I haven't blocked it yet. I'm hoping that'll take care of the poufies. I used two buttons together 'cause I like them both.

It was a nice pattern, huh? Now I'll do it in silk or something with more "body" ; something expensive (for me). ; )

Wow how did you get the correct pattern for this??? I just started and at row 13 it just ends and row 14 says to crochet in cluster-3 which has not even been made yet???
