It never occurred to me to write up a pattern for this cape but when a lovely woman saw it on insta she went looking for it.

While writing notes for her to create her own soul-blossoming version - in purples and mauves she told me later - I realised what a lovely project it is and that others might also like to make their own version.

Here is a joy-liberating, super-simple soulful project that allows your inner wild to blossom.

Not a prescriptive pattern, rather an inspiring, easy guide to creating your own Soul Blossom Cape that is a joy to create and wear.

I hope all kinds of knitters will find it soothing and satisfying to use favourite yarns to wear around the shoulders of themselves or loved ones.

It’s a relaxing opportunity for using various yarns from sentimental FOs or design your own version.

I knitted the Soul Blossom Cape pictured here in garter stitch throughout with different textured yarns. See my Project page for full details of yarns used.

Maybe you like this mixed textures look - or will you create something completely different using the same yarn worked in different stitches like a kind of aran sampler. Or showcase all your favourite handspun yarns in one garment. Or knit a rainbow cape with every panel a different colour?

Let your creativity rise and fall and flow into a meditative process of letting your heart sing as you play.
