Whether it is used for special occasions or everyday, a carrying cape is a an easy way of keeping a baby warm! The bonnet (and bootees) can be used separately.

If you want the cape to be used every day and washed frequently, use a superwash wool - sock yarns are ideal!

Note that the pattern will work with other fingering yarns from ColourMart, and also those from other companies but you must check your tension.
