Japanese Baby Cape







Pattern:  Japanese Baby Cape, Graph Only, HERE.
Yarn:  Fortissima Socka, Colorway 1050 (2 balls, see notes)
Hook:  Size G
Satisfaction Level:  I'm ga-ga over it!

Wow, was this fun to make!  I used the above sock yarn (that's a link if you want more info on it). It would work for a baby, but I think it looks great as a short bolero-type cape on my dress form in that last picture above. Would look cute over a sundress in the summer. I started with a chain of 101. On a baby, it would be gathered more around the neck and look smaller.

I'm going to have another cup of coffee and stare at it a little while longer.  :)

NOW WHAT?
I have a few ideas.
I know you're shocked.

  4. OH. MY. GOODNESS! That is just gorgeous! I think you should keep it and wear it. It's romantic looking and would look so "Downton Abbey"! Can you model it for us? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  6. Oh how pretty. I really like that style. I am with Teresa, you should model it. To me it doesn't look like something a child would wear.

    Fantastic job Pam!

  8. It has turned out so lovely Pammy Sue, I think it's very adaptable, it could be made for an evening cape or on a baby or toddler, it could be dressy or sporty, it all depends on the yarn you use but yours is definitely posh! That web site has lots of lovely charts on there. :)

  11. Wow! C'est magnifique! I looked at her patterns and would love to make the little sleeveless sweater with the kitty cat buttons. (I think it has the number "21" in it's picture.)
    Alas,, I'm skeert of the graph, the fact that it's in Japanese and the blog is in French.
    Very impressive, Pammy Sue :)

  29. Off white / ivory...it always intrigues me! It's classic, goes with all and so luxurious looking! I still haven't delved into this one...but have every intention of doing so...soon! I've been on a mission of "finish up your WIP nightmares that are tucked everywhere around the house". Oh, and then I decided to tackle knitting once again. I'm making a scarf...ha...like I need ANOTHER! I have quite the collection, should really give them away...but I don't wanna! I like each of them way too much! But back to your darling cape here...I L.O.V.E. it!
