ABOUT THE PATTERN The Brianna Cloak is a simple top-down seamless hooded cloak with three cables. One larger cable panel runs the entire length of the back and two smaller cables run just inside the front edging. The edge dips downward at the back to form a high-low hem that adds length while conserving yarn. The hood uses an optional simple tuck method to avoid the pointy hood syndrome.
