A variation on the Lindsey Cape. I added a lined hood for rainy/windy days and put it to use right away! I got the pattern for the hood from another Japanese sewing book, and inserted it along with the collar onto the neckline.
I really like the double knit wool, it is sturdier yet still has the drape for the cape. And the lining material was leftover from another project, which works really well with the color of the cape. It is soft and comfortable.
As for the pattern, Burda pattern is always not very clear cut for me, so I half winged it.
All in all, it was an one-day project, and I am loving the cape.
