New on ETSY-Cape Shawl Knitting pattern

New Pattern for sale on ETSY

Here is an easy pattern for a cape shawl. This is a reproduction from a knitting book from early 1900's Scotland.

The edging is a simple crochet trim. Tassels on are the ties and side corners.

The pattern calls for DK weight yarn and UK 4 (US 10) knitting needles. You could also use worsted weight yarn since exact sizing is not an issue.

Here are some ideas for wearing this item:

** elegant "poncho" type garment for cooler days
** pretty "bedjacket" type garment for bedridden friend
** dignified coverup for nursing home resident
** simple garment for reenactment costume
