In the studio
Capelet, nylon and metallic tape, red and gold, filet crochet, size p aluminum hook.
The guage must be very large for this tape to drape properly, but the results are quite wonderful. It's purely decorative as a garment, and I like that. I visualize it working not merely over plain colors, but I think it could spice up prints as well.
I chained about 150 stitches, then joined the chain to form a circle. Now I will filet crochet for about 7 inches, decrease for a shoulder curve, then decrease again to form the neckline. I will add a shell or piquot border to the bottom.
