Firey Red/Orange Crochet Capelet - Design W419

There is a thing called "exploded lace", whereby you take an old fashioned doily pattern and instead of making it in thin crochet cotton a tiny crochet hook you use a heavy weight yarn and a big crochet hook and "explode" that lace, in other words you make a big version of a tiny thing.  

This crochet capelet has been designed using "exploded lace" and I used Colinette Tagliatelli in shade "Fire" to crochet the capelet.  It is a super bulky ribbon type yarn of 90% Merino Wool/10% Nylon.  I also used red and orange lustre glass beads on the ends of the fringing to match the yarn.

This starts from the neck down and I started on 24 January and was finished by 27th January 2012.
