Buttoned Crochet Capelet_2

Silver-grey worsted weight yarn, 6.5 mm hook, all except button band worked double-crochet through the back loop. Button band worked single crochet through both loops. Originally planned for this piece to be a shrug but the Vanna's Choice (Lion Brand) yarn was too thick to get the look I wanted. After staring at the rectangle of fabric for almost a month, I finally got an idea to turn it into a shawl/capelet. I LOVE buttons, so I just simply added the buttonband and buttons. Voila!, a crocheted shawl with the lacy look of knitted lace but with only a fraction of the time and concentration knitting would require (at least for me anyway)!
