Almost everyone at Castlefest dresses up, there're all kinds of costumes, historic, anime, sci-fi, etc. As I'm a bit of a Sherlock Holmes fan I decided to make a Sherlock Holmes inspired cosplay. As always I had way too many ideas and ran out of time to make everything I wanted to make. I actually finished my capelet on the morning of the festival (and to be quite honest I didn't properly finish it until last week!).
I also made the skirt for this outfit, and hope to share more pictures of the skirt with you soon.
But for now you'll have to make do with my capelet! ;)
To me the scarf didn't feel very Sherlock Holmes at all. So I decided to add a collar instead.
I like it much better with the collar! I knitted the collar in garter stitch and added the lighter yarn for two rows to make the collar more one with the rest of the capelet.
