Elder Care “Warm Shoulders” Capelet

(I don't recall who sent this pattern to me years ago, but it is not Bev's so she is not able to answer questions on it. The pattern is copyrighted to the sender and to Bev's Country Cottage. (c) 2000)

"A nurse who works in an “elder care” department at a local hospital made a request. Patients brought in often had nothing but the clothes on their backs.  They complained of the cold, trying to wrap various items around their shoulders.  After searching the internet for something appropriate and finding nothing substantial, the following pattern was developed.  Pattern is designed to be elbow-length."  Anon donor of pattern
