Deceptively simple repeats of chevrons and yarn overs give this piece form and texture. Perfect layering piece and a beautiful addition to your wardrobe for every season. My love of genealogy was the inspiration for the name of this pattern. Fearcorbda of Alba (also known as Scotland) resides in the distant branches of my family tree. The only information I have been able to find to date is that she was born in 677 and died 723 AD. Fashion of the day for that region was practical-oriented and probably would not have included a capelet. But I’d like to think the women of that era would have taken the time to make something fancy for themselves because “they’re worth it”!
