Town and City Tufted Cape

£4.00

by Susan Crawford

This elegant cape is the perfect cover-up for the spring or the autumn. Using a textured tuft stitch it will keep you warm without looking or feeling bulky.

Knitted in a standard double knit yarn on 5mm needles this design will knit up surprisingly quickly.

This simple pattern is easy to follow and is available in sizes from 30-52 inches.

The finished length is measured from the top of the main body at the front neck and includes the garter stitch edging around the bottom of the cape. The cape is very generous and accommodating in size and shape and will fit a variety of sizes. As a result, I suggest you consider what fit you would like before choosing your size. The small will actually fit a 42 inch chest but it will fit higher and more open at the front.

To fit sizes
Small: 76-92cm (30-36 in)
Medium: 96-112cm (38-44 in)
Large: 117-132cm (46-52 in)
