In theory, I love capes. I love the idea of knitting a layer that wraps around you like a blanket, and I love how they look on other women.
In practice, however…
…not so much.
While I got gauge with both of these, I had to go down a few needle sizes, which made for a stiffer fabric. This is why the bind-off row is all flippy. (Yes, that’s a technical term.) Also, they don’t cover enough to keep me warm, and there isn’t enough detail for them to look cute.
THEIR CERTAIN FATE: Both of these will be frogged at some point soon. While I’m trying to find a good use for about 400 yards of pre-Made in China Cascade 220, the purple yarn will probably become an Alex Tinsley tam (possibly Foo Foo or Sweetness, unless you have a better idea.)
