What does a mysterious, fancy lady-about-town wear with her cocktail dress during a cold-weather excursion? Surely not a parka. Knit yourself an incredibly luxurious cape for all those times you want to dress up and be cozy. Cape Vertigo also compliments jeans, skirts and boots, you name it-- a versatile piece for the cooler months.
The large gathered collar keeps the chill away from your neck (it’s like a built-in scarf) while the patterned cape surrounds you in swishy coziness. Very simple colorwork pattern, and a good beginner steeking project. Pure knitting pleasure!
Measurements: 20 (22.5)” neck, measured at collar fold, 58 (66)” at bust over arms, 26” length from back neck, should fit oversize.
This is an intermediate/advanced pattern.
