Weekly Fave! A Cape For Fall

Shimmer Cape by Martin Storey

Unfortunately, cape season is very short where I live. Capes are a great transitional garment for the less chilly months of the year. This beautiful, lace detail cape, designed by Martin Storey is available as a free pattern at Rowan. The yarn used to knit this design is Rowan’s Selects Patina, a mohair blend that reveals a subtle sheen. It knits to a DK (double knit weight) gauge, so you can easily substitute with a similar type, but if you want the look of mohair with a shimmer, stick to mohair blends with other fibers like silk. This cape is an easy knit, and you may have time to wear it before the snow flies.
