Malania Capelet

Malania Capelet

Malania by Anniken Allis

This beautiful capelet by Anniken Allis is worked from the bottom up with a wide lace border. The crescent shape is achieved by working a combination of short rows and decreases. Anniken has designed this to feature a button to fasten the capelet in place around the shoulders, but if preferred, this can be worn as a shawl without the button.

The capelet has been knitted in Louisa Harding's striking Amitola, a 4ply blend of wool and silk that comes in self-striping colours.

Maisie Poncho

Maisie by Anniken Allis

"This on-trend poncho is perfect for layering on chilly spring days," says designer Anniken Allis. It's constructed from two knitted rectangles, joined along the shoulders and top of arms, with buttons at the lower edge. By knitting it sideways, the self-striping yarn from Noro will create vertical stripes, which emphasise the rippling lace pattern. Noro's Shiro yarn is a wonderfully tactile blend of wool, cashmere and silk, and comes in both subtle and bold colourways.

Cottage Comfort Cardi-Cape

Cottage Comfort Cardi-Cape

Plane perfect is the best way to describe Jill Wright's Cottage Comfort Cardi-Cape, knitted in Skacel Zitron's LifeStyle superwash merino. Jill joined the cape's edges to create a cardi effect and accented her piece with paired lace panels along the fronts that are mirrored up the center back. This design is also great for knitting on the go, as it's done in one piece beginning at the neck edge.
