The stranded colourwork in this cape is based on an Icelandic magical stave for disguise; in Icelandic, it is called Hulinhjalmur. The spell itself is a bit grisly, but once done, it was supposed to prevent your enemies from seeing you. The stave is beautiful on its own and lends itself well to intarsia knitting.

YARN: Diamond Luxury Highlander (100% Peruvian Wool, sport weight, 50g/138m per ball); 6/7/7/8/9/10/11/12/13/14 balls in Dark Blue (3309) and 1/1/2/2/2/2/2/3/3/4 ball(s) in Marine Blue (col. 3308).

NEEDLES: 3.25 mm 24” circular needles (or size required to obtain gauge), and 2.75 mm circular needles (or needles 0.5 mm smaller than main needles) for working neckline and button band.

GAUGE: 24 sts x 32 rows in stockinette

MEASUREMENTS/SIZING: 36/38/40/42/44/46/48/50/52/54” around chest (with approximately 4” of positive ease, so if your bust measures 32”, knit the 36” size).

OTHER MATERIALS USED: Yarn holder, approx. 16 3/4”-1” buttons, needle and thread.
