PATTERN DETAILS

Shawls and capes are such comfort clothes, with their gentle drape and ease of both wear and creation. However, many shawls are created in a triangle shape... which for those of us with (ahem) derrires isn't the most flattering of looks. Who wants an arrow pointing right at their largest body part? This cape/shawl was designed to have a simple silhouette and construction while also allowing for a gentle curve around the back. This is a nearly infinitely customizable pattern: multiple options exist for closures, and the more adventurous knitter is encouraged to play with stitch patterns and lace borders in the main stockinette sections. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knit, purl, & yo stitches GAUGE 13 stitches and 18 rows = 4 inches in Stockinette stitch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS one size: 24in neck hem, 77in waist hem, 16in height

Recommended with this pattern

  • 450 - 525 yards (411 - 480 m) ribbon (or worsted) yarn
  • US9 (5.5mm) needles
  • Yarn needle

I’m a lifelong knitter, from a family of knitters, gardeners, seamstresses, and sailors (yes, even the men!) - who also happen to be doctors, scientists, priests, and businesspeople (yes, even the women!). I like to design baby blankets, accessories for children, adults, and the home, and garments for children and adults. You can find my patterns through my indie line here on Craftsy or in a variety of print and online magazines and books. I happily work with local yarn stores, crafters, and indie dyers: please contact me to start a conversation about how we can support each other! I’m a certified knitting teacher, accomplished technical editor for knitting patterns, and in my daily life am an academic science librarian.
