Hooded cloaks were popular outerwear during the beginning of the Regency era. The cloaks in Britain were traditionally red in color, were made of wool or broadcloth and lined with fur or silk, and reached almost to the ground. I've attempted to update this fashion by designing a hooded capelet. The pattern starts at the front of the hood and is worked down toward the neck using short-rows and clever shaping. The semicircular capelet extends seamlessly from the base of the hood to the elbow.
