This pretty, cropped cape is the perfect cover up in the spring time, adding a touch of sophistication to every young lady’s daytime wardrobe. Knitted in this fascinating tufted stitch it is a fun and quick knit.

To fit bust sizes 30 - 52 inch

5 (5, 6) balls in Nile Green (MC)
1 (1, 1) ball in Persian Grey (CC)
1 pair 4mm (US #6) needles
1 pair 5mm (US #8) needles

This is a standard DK weight yarn with a stocking stitch tension of 22.5 sts to 4 inches (10cm) using 4mm (US #6) needles.
The finished length is measured from the top of the main body at the front neck and includes the garter stitch edging around the bottom of the cape. The cape is very generous and accommodating in size and shape and will fit a variety of sizes. As a result, I suggest you consider what fit you would like before choosing your size. The small will actually fit a 42 inch chest but it will fit higher and more open at the front.

This pattern is part of my Vintage Gifts to Knits booklet which is available now either as an e-book or as a printed booklet or the patterns can be purchased individually as PDFs via ravelry.
