This snowy, swingy cape is an update of a 1960s handknit heirloom that made its way into the hands of designer Cosette Cornelius-Bates. It came with a story. The original was finished at the last minute so the knitter’s daughter could wear it to an ice skating party. This contemporary remake is perfect for gifting and can be worn equally beautifully as a cape or skirt.

About the book…..

When most people think of their grandmother’s knitting, they might not immediately see the connection to a modern knitter’s life. But in My Grandmother’s Knitting, Larissa Brown shows us that nothing could be further from the truth.

Many of today’s hippest and most popular knitters found their passion for knitting under the tutelage of their grandmother or another revered family member, and in this book, they share stories and patterns inspired by their memories and their gratitude.

This book is available for preorder on amazon and will be released September 1, 2011.
