Called the Shimmering Cloak in Knitting Wizardry.

Inspired by our daughter’s fascination with Ignotus Peverell’s Cloak of Invisibility, I set out to create a garment reminiscent of the unassuming piece of fabric with great magical powers. The blend of alpaca and silk yarn creates a wonderfully fluid drape, and its name, Metalico, aptly describes its seemingly metallurgical shimmer, which is a key component of this design. With a nod to Ignotus Peverell’s thirteenth-century roots, the unisex cloak mimics chain mail, and is suitable for an advanced beginning knitter.

This cloak is worked seamlessly in one piece from the hem up and is secured with a single button at the neck. If you wish to make the cloak longer, you may do so as indicated in the instructions.
