Pretty in Pink

Pretty in pink, but it looks great in all the colors! This capelet starts at the neck and is worked down. After several rows of raglan increases that widen the piece, cast on the button(hole) bands & keep going. The easy lace pattern used to edge the bottom border is also used on the collar. Sew on some buttons, and ta-da! A cozy cape!

Delores Cape

Delores Cape, Gauguin color way

The Delores is similar in shape to and worked from the top down like the Cape Bohemia, but feels completely different. Luscious thick-n-thin, soft chenille, and shimmery ribbon are Delores’ way. Use the same color way in all yarns or choose contrasting colors to emphasize the bands of color as well as texture!

Cape Bohemia

Cape Bohemia, cinnamon

Perhaps more SoHo than boho? Regardless, a fun knit to keep you stylish, warm, and hands-free on a brisk evening out and about!

The cape is worked in the round from the neck down. Yarn over increases worked into each of the 4 unequal sections—a front and back plus 2 shoulder sections—shape the cape while creating detail lines mimicking the border eyelets.
