Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This first caught my attention due to the color. Then I read the directions and that settled it. I had to make it for my niece. She is a big fan of Meagan Markel. And Meagan loves boat neck collars. So my niece is too. This will make a gorgeous Christmas gift.

I'm gonna start making this capelet today but I'm making a lot of changes like the color, the stitches, etc. Thanks for the pattern which is just in front of the page.

How many more stitches to make larger sizes

I too should like to make this in a larger size as I am a tall voluptuous female. I also have family members with similar proportions and would like to make Christmas gifts for them.

How would you make it larger?

I am trying to figure out the same thing did you ever receive an answer? if you did will you share. I would like to not have to resort to trial and error. Thank you
