Curiously “Peplum” has two distinct and almost separate definitions. Its early origins are Greek, and peplum was simply the word for tunic. The peplum, a term dating back to the 19th century, is also a short overskirt that is usually attached to a fitted jacket. My jacket is certainly a fitted jacket with a short skirt.
Is this the jacket you would like the pattern for? It has pointed sections over the hand and at the back of the peplum skirt. There is no collar and is very fitting in 12ply mohair. The mohair was black with sections of rich blues and is no longer available.
Jacket Pattern Brewing for rather a long time.
or one of these designs below?
Sleeveless again with pin fastening, no collar, but includes lapel flap. (not sure if that describes it or not – the lapel does not continue around the back of the neck). The skirt or peplum is much fuller and longer and without the pointed section.
We have been chasing our tails for a while here in Miranda. Best Beloveds mother passed away in early August followed soon after by a brother and then a sister. A couple of friends now have serious illnesses; cancer and heart and we are just plodding along.
The good news is our granddaughter was born nearly 5 weeks ago. She has lifted our spirits.
In all of those life changing events I had forgotten all about my orange capelet created using Fibonacci spaced increases. I added photos onto Facebook at the end of July and I didn’t go on and create a post.
In the beginning was this wee wing
Front view of Fibonacci Sequence Capelet – can’t wait to work further on this and add colour and stitch possibilities.
Another view of my Fibonacci Sequence Capelet. I am ready to start another now writing what I do as I go possibly in variegated yarn rather than using intarsia technique.
Fibonacci Capelet version 1 back view. Just off the needles and shows there is potential for creating a new capelet using the Fibonacci Sequence.
Could be quite a sexy sultry piece – so have to go on, find some suitably sexy yarn that will show this shape and the body well and then write complete notes that could end in a pattern. Trouble is I like knitting, playing with colour and shape and exploring ideas. Sadly I don’t like writing patterns. But I will.
Yes I will.
The 987 stitches are spread over 3 circular needles size 6mm x 80cm. A longer length could be easier – but I don’t have one. Next increase row will give me the scary sum of 1597 stitches. Will need 4 circular needles I think.
Can you see the capelet to be?
Let me know please!
My new Fibonacci neck warmer/capelet. This piece has now been increased to 610 stitches. The shape is fabulous, I hope I have a longer circular needle so I can increase to 1597 or even to 2584. I might not have sufficient yarn for 2584 stitches but will wait and see.
The yarn is Moda Vera Bouvardia, 70% acrylic, 30% wool. colour green, 104-06, lot 2
