This was an idea that just wouldn't leave my head from the moment I started looking at Wrap Style again. I simple but cozy capelet.  The original plan was to make the cape long enough so that I had to make slits for where my hands would pop out but I decided to stop just above the elbow. That original sketch still lingers on my mind so you never know what could be coming next.

I had quite the educational time working on the pattern. I even ripped the whole thing out and started over. The CC color on the collar was originally a provisional cast on (at the time I was eager to get to the shaping and thought I'd complete the rest of the neck later) but after showing it to a few people they all loved that pop of color and I kept it in!

All in the creative process right?  What I'm left with is a cute, cozy, shoulder warmer, with a collar that can be buttoned or pinned up to be a turtleneck should the chilly weather sneak up on me.

Queue it up! or buy now!

Happy Knitting!

    I love this … loved it when you first gave us a sneak peak and love it even more now that you have photographed it full frontal. I agree that the contrast in the color adds a nice dimension and I think I prefer it on the short side, too. Congratulations on the release of a new pattern.

    The middle aged lady in this story had the best opportunity to save given her high salary job and increased net worth. For those in industry that have high risk in returning to the career field onceafter job is lost, then they need to find ways to financially sustain their life until they get back on their feet. A high earner like her should have been able to have equity in their home, have Roth IRAs, have high FICO scores and really good credit cards.
