Cape_3_large

Description

Wool cape I made last winter. The hood is lined with jersey, and the “holes for the arm” (any idea about the real technical word?) are trimmed with the same jersey.

It’s not as warm as a real coat (too many places for fresh air to come inside !) so I wear it over a little grey jacket that I have, and it’s perfect for rainy day.

    yup, got the numbers but still got in a knot! I made two hoods (one as a lining) and both turned out different! I think I am a complete muppet but one of them is right, I just have to unpick the other! (again!) Ha! =)

      Thanks! I was worried about the hood too, but then I realised the Burda marks were very useful. Look carefully at the pattern and indications. The numbers match. If I remember correctly, there’s a central band of fabric, and two similar bands at each side. I hope my words are clear! Good luck!

    This looks very warm and cosy, ideal as an overjacket for extra warmth.
