I had some slightly synthetic looking sweater fabric, with a lovely fleece inside. So I thought it would be a great chance to use it and experiment with this cape pattern. I’ve made it a little longer than the tutorial, and have a rather basic machine so had to use a zig zag sweater stitch, but it’s turned out looking quite nice. I’ve also made it a bit longer than the one in the tutorial, as i wanted both wrists covered (and alm tall enough to look a bit gawky with too-short ‘sleeves’.
Great if you suit boat-neck style necklines. And it’s very cosy. I can happily survive the air-con now.
About a metre of sweater fabric.
