Are capes still in?
I hope so because I'm finally getting round to wearing mine!
This was my fist BIG knit (ie. not a scarf!).
I chose to knit a cape because there would be no sleeves to fight with. I love it particularly because I knit it from a vintage pattern - it's the one on the left below.
Even better, I was able to find the actual suggested bouclé vintage yarn in a very nice lady's stash in Ravelry. How great is that?! So I'm snuggling a cape that was super trendy 50 years ago in wool produced 50 years ago.
So is my cape new or vintage?
Oh, and for the pros and cons of cape wearing, this is a must read!
