Watch your step ... you don't want to trip on all these CABLES!
Today I'm sharing my latest KNITTED creation, a stunning sweater cape pattern by Cleckheaton Patterns.
I'm pretty sure if I was a super hero this is exactly the sort of cape I would wear. Who wouldn't appreciate a super hero that was both fashion forward, and warm?!!!
When I first saw this pattern by Cleckheaton I gasped out loud. I had been looking for a sweater pattern that was a bit more modern and something that I would get a lot of wear out of. This design is the perfect combination of both fashionable and comfortable.
I loved that the pattern was also interesting and challenging enough with all the cables down the front and back panels to stop you from getting bored, cause knitting takes a lot longer than sewing!
A stunning superfine merino also by Cleckheaton in the limited edition colour way 'blush'.
This 8ply/double knit yarn was so soft to the touch and has a beautiful tight twist to give the finished knit a beautiful defined and neat shape.
Both the front and back of this cape have a cable panel feature which really adds such a lovely touch to the garment.
The pattern comes with two neck options, a simple round neckband or a roll collar. Both look lovely but I loved the drama of a big roll neck and it's super snuggly and soft.
Most of all I love the timeless cape silhouette which is both comfortable and warm
You could wear this top with a long sleeved top underneath, or just by itself like I have done. Because it is knitted in a wool yarn, it is breathable enough to wear on a cooler day, but warm enough to keep you toasty on a really cold day.
I am SO pleased with how this turned out! Not being an experienced knitter I always worry about how the piece is going to turn out, especially after putting so many hours into it!
I love the shape, the size and the colour of this and I've already worn it out a few times. My very first outing was to take photos in front of this amazing flower wall that just happened to be set up at a shopping centre in Melbourne. Now I only ever want to take photos in front of flower walls. HOW CAN I MAKE THIS HAPPEN?!!
I hope you all have a lovely week! xx
