June 2016 update --

This pattern has been redone! My lovely friend Vivienne wore this cape out into the forest and took some lovely photos. She is a wonderful teacher of self love through self portraiture. She has e-classes going often. Check them out!

Capes are lovely. They fit over hoodies, they stay on better than shawls when you’re riding your bike (or in my case, scooter). Capes are awesome.

This one was designed with the same yarn and leaf stitch pattern as The Lonely Tree and The Elder Tree. It’s a favourite of mine, if you couldn’t tell ;)

I hope you enjoy this lovely project!
