Knitted Capelet Little Shell Pattern

This knit really does look stunning when worn over anything! If you haven't tried a little shell stitch pattern, its a very simple and effective pattern to use. Typically, the stitch pattern accounts for RS and WS, but I knitted this in the round so all the WS are actually RS! (Does this make sense?) Anyways, the modified stitch pattern to be knitted in the round is below.
