Here are two lovely, nature-inspired cape/shawl patterns that will be a fun project to both make and wear on a cool autumn evening. I can just picture wrapping up in one of these around a mulled wine or cottage fireplace as you close down the season.
The CapeShawl is a CAL that’s on right now and the beauty of CALs is that you can participate and interact with other crocheters, perfect your art. And build a sense of community. Beyond that, it’s a beautiful project in its own right, with the intricate and varied bands of stitching the author has included. The Snow cape is a little simpler, a little quieter, but nevertheless still a beautiful example of a crocheted cape that will serve you well long after you have completed making it. It will also be a fun project to make, as what it gives up in terms of fancy stitching, it makes up for in shape and density. A link to the free pattern is below photos.
