Shawls and capes are such comfort clothes, with their gentle drape and ease of both wear and creation. However, many shawls are created in a triangle shape… which for those of us with (ahem) derrières isn’t the most flattering of looks. Who wants an arrow pointing right at their largest body part?

This cape/shawl was designed to have a simple silhouette and construction while also allowing for a gentle curve around the back. This is a nearly infinitely customizable pattern: multiple options exist for closures, and the more adventurous knitter is encouraged to play with stitch patterns and lace borders in the main stockinette sections.

Many thanks to pattern tester Moilulu for help!
