A beautiful cape knitted in the Shetland Island tradition of Fair Isle stranded knitting. And the Shetland yarn is grown on our farm. Feel like a character in Outlander as you pair this cape with a skirt or over jeans. The pattern includes directions for 2 sizes, clear graphed charts and lots of pictures. The cape is knitted in 1 piece from the top down. It includes a back created with short rows so that it fits like the yoke of a sweater.
