Pattern - Town and City Tufted Cape


PDF Download Only

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 - just perfect for air conditioned offices. The cape is knitted from the top down and can be made longer simply by knitting additional pattern repeats as explained in the pattern. Please bear in mind you may need extra yarn to make the cape longer. It is very generously fitted and accommodating in both size and shape.

Knitted using Excelana DK 100% british wool from Susan Crawford, and knitted on a large needle this project knits up surprisingly quickly.
