I'm sure you've seen the zig zag pattern everywhere on clothing, scarves, purses, shoes, notebooks, and even furniture! Back in the 70's most people called this a "ripple" pattern and it was very popular as an afghan design. I wasn't crazy about ripples back then, but I've discovered that it was mainly the colors they put together, just as I posted about the 70's granny square colors that were just not appealing to me. With the right colors zig zags have kind of grown on me.
This capelet could easily be done in crochet. If I were doing it, I would work the ripples in the round (or in a rectangular piece) but work the solid color in vertical rows attaching the ends of the rows to the bottom part as you go along. of course I would use my Graduated Stitch Method and work sc and dc on the same row to get the shaped effect.
Most of my other yarn is in big tubs, bags and drawers. I'm hoping to have one of the rooms in my house dedicated to just yarn and some other crafts. One day, that is........
