It's a great cape. Designer is Brooke Nico, with ArtYarns. The pattern is in their One+One book.
I started it late last week and made it my weekend project. Steady knitting brings me to Tuesday and a finished item. Yeah!
The yarn is Paton's Canadiana, a superb acrylic that knits up soft and even. The cape calls for a CCYA 4 weight. Of course, ArtYarns features their own incredible fibers in all the patterns in One+One. (The link from ArtYarns takes you to Amazon. I always hesitate to link to a particular purchase site, so check out KnitPicks or WEBS or your LYS.)
Here are some detail pix.
Whatever that color disclaimer is, you can insert it here _____. The bottom foto is closer to the 'truth.'
This one has worked up quite smoothly. It's rated "Intermediate" but only because the pattern, as you can see, is irregular. The leaves get larger as they fall down the length of the cape/shawl.
- Yes, I'd make this pattern again, definitely.
- Yes, buy the book. My purchase was a kind of accidental online selection that's made me happy I erred.
- Yes, I'd love to try any of the designs in One+One, using the ArtYarns specified -- they are all gorgeous and incredible.
- Yes, prayer works. This I believe. Amen
