Increasing, decreasing and knitting two sets of stitches together
A vintage-style cape of delicately layered ruffles.
The cape is worked from the bottom up. Each ruffle is knitted separately and then joined to the cape by a row where stitches from the two pieces are knitted together. This is not a difficult pattern, it just involves a lot of knitting!
30 sts and 44 rows to 10cm over st st using 2.75mm needles - tension is not vital, as the cape simply drapes over the shoulders.
