Knit Fit Revisited: 1930s inspired knit capes

Fall is officially here in my lovely little town. Bring on the warm woolies...and capes! Since my swing dance classes didn't pan out (due to insufficient numbers enrolled, the class was cancelled) I am considering trying my hand at knitting (it's been a long while). If I do, I might attempt a vintage-inspired knit cape, like these lovelies I spotted. The second one is called the Marple pattern, after Miss Marple. Images via Ethknits.

Fantastic pieces - capes, especially longer ones, have always been something I've enjoyed, too.


Wishing you a splendid Monday & week ahead!
