My new design, the Frenchman’s Bay Cape, is simple, reversible, knit top down, and finished with a wide 5 stitch i-cord edging that gives it a sense of substance. I especially like that cast-off with the Gansey-inspired diamond stitch pattern. The skills are rated at intermediate but would be achievable by an enthusiastic beginning knitter.
This photo shows the “wrong” side out.
This is the detail of the “right” and “wrong” side of the stitch pattern. I thought that the original yarn I used, the green, a Colourmart yak and mohair blend, didn’t show the stitch definition enough so I made another, in a Shelridge Classic worsted wool in Ice Blue, in a smaller size.
I hope you knit this pattern and enjoy it. I’d love to know what you think.
