This (http://www.craftbits.com/viewProject.do?projectID=550) has a nice length and shape. I don't know if you'd want silver, though. ;)

Enchanted Knitting has some wonderful cloaks, but I can't find a picture of them on line.

Is this the book you're talking about, Ingrid?

Enchanted Knitting: Charted Motifs for Hand and Machine Knitting (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1883010217/sr=8-1/qid=1140494276/ref=pd_bbs_1/104-3854800-9151927?%5Fencoding=UTF8)

Maybe it could be had at the library?

That's it! It has some fantastic charts, designed for machine knitting, but useable for hand knitting, as well.

The cloaks are beautiful, too, though they would take a long time to knit, for sure.

As for the library. . . it's not really a 'popular' knitting book, so who knows?
