Whether you’re out for a winter walk, watching TV or chopping veg in a chilly kitchen, this unique garment is perfect for keeping your neck and shoulders warm, but leaving your arms and hands free!
The Snowcap Cape can be popped over a shirt or a sweater anytime - with no buttons to be fastened – providing a trendy extra layer in seconds!
Inspired by the bumps and dips of a snow-covered ski-ing piste, the Snowcap Cape features an unusual cable-like stitch, created by twisting a set of stitches. The cape is knitted from the bottom-up with circular knitting on circular needles. And as the piece is worked, the pattern repeat decreases to create the fabulous shape naturally!
