ART DECO Cape / Poncho / Capelet knitting pattern
For good reasons capes and ponchos had an overwhelming fashion comeback in the last years. Thea are easy to wear, and they offer endless possibilities for the designers in texture and construction.
Set against a deep black background, the colours of the NORO Silk Garden yarn radiate like lead glass windows from the Art Deco era. Combine your cape with your Little Black Dress or wear it casual with Jeans – it will look great either way! The knitting is pure fun – and much easier than the cape looks like!
Please check my Nice Price Bundle ART DECO before purchase. You find it on my shop page here on makerist.
Enjoy the knitting and wearing! Yours Steffi
