The Boulevardier is a cape and hat combo that proves there’s no need to sacrifice style for warmth. A bulky yarn worked into cables and textured stitches provide all the protection from the cold you need, while the unique design and interesting decoration make a for a snazzy set you’ll love to wear.

The cape is worked seamlessly from the top down, starting at the neck. Increases are worked into the Seed Stitch sides to shape the shoulders and body, with panels of bulky cables decorating the front and back. The collar is picked up from the cast on and knit into a cozy turtleneck.

The hat is knit from the bottom up with a slightly slouched construction. The diamond cable motif from the cape is repeated on the hat.

This pattern is fully charted.
