Knitting for women Knitting Poncho Cottage Comfort Cardi-Cape

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.
