In spite of my addiction to neutral colors, I find that a bright pop of color goes a long way in an otherwise muted wardrobe. Cape Creek is the perfect canvas to showcase a bright tonal; while it’s primarily knit in stockinette stitch, it features strategic wildflower knot columns down both sides of the body for subtle visual interest. They create a very slight bit of shaping at the sides, as well. With extra length and positive ease for a comfortable fit, Cape Creek will be a quick favorite.

Cape Creek is worked flat from the beginning until the neck shaping is complete, then joined to work in the round from there. Wildflower knot columns down the lower portion of the body offer visual interest throughout the project, and help to break up significant portions of stockinette stitch.
