Shawls and capes are such comfort clothes, with their gentle drape and ease of both wear and creation. However, many shawls are created in a triangle shape… which for those of us with (ahem) derrières isn’t the most flattering of looks. Who wants an arrow pointing right at their largest body part?
This cape/shawl was designed to have a simple silhouette and construction while also allowing for a gentle curve around the back. This is a nearly infinitely customizable pattern: multiple options exist for closures, and the more adventurous knitter is encouraged to play with stitch patterns and lace borders in the main stockinette sections.
