Escape Cape to knit

Knit an easy cape to wear this fall to stay warm. Escape Cape knits up fast on big needles. This cape is knit sideways in short row wedges with a little lace at the bottom edge. Add buttons or knit and wear as a shawl.

You’ll need 380 yards of a bulky weight yarn and size 11 (8 mm) knitting needles, 3 stitch marker, and 4 buttons. The cape is about elbow length measuring 24” at neckline x 17” long x 57” around. I used 3 skeins of Yarn Bee Tender Touch in willow green from Hobby Lobby for the pictured cape.

Instructions are given for modifying the pattern to make a smaller, larger, or longer cape, or shawl.

The 3 page pattern has written instructions. The pattern sells for $3.00 in my Ravelry pattern store.
