Shandeh's Bernat Cape KAL
 
1 Attachment(s)
As some of you know, I'm going to be blogging for the Bernat yarn company, starting in October. I'm really excited about it!

Anyway, the first project I've chosen to make is the Side Button Hooded Cape - a free pattern on their website. You have to sign in to the Bernat site see the pattern.

I would love it if some of you would join me in making the cape. It's a nice, easy knitting project with chunky yarn, so it should go quickly. When we finish, we will all have a nice accessory for our Fall wardrobe! :thumbsup:

It lokks like a fun project. I'll join the knit-along.

Yay! Thanks for joining me!

I'm making the size 2X cape, so I'm using about 10 skeins of yarn. So far, I've finished all of one skein, and was able to knit about 9 inches of the back of the cape.


I'm using the new color of Bernat Softee Chunky, called "Fern". I think it will go well with the rest of my clothes.

:woot: I'm so excited! I just finished the back side. It took all but a few inches of 4 skeins. I'll admit, I got a little nervous getting so close to the end of that last skein. But, I had just enought to finish. This is my first attempt knitting something to wear other than a scarf or hat.

I'm ready to start the front piece. I didn't have any Bernat yarn...so, I'm using Patons Shetland Chunky Tweeds...Earthy Brown. :knitting:

Go PAM!!!! :cheering:
You are MUCH faster than me. I've done 13 inches on the back. I really like the look of it, don't you?

I'm a slow knitter, and I'm making a size 2X. So, I guess that's why I'm so far behind you.

Here's the latest photo of my work so far:

That looks like an ambitious project, but if I were to wear this, I'd look like one giant potato in a sack!

Have fun with it, and I will watch your progress. I'd like to see how you look in it, Shandeh. Will you model for us? If you can manage to look good in it, I may consider knitting one up.

I doubt I'm faster...I just have no life:teehee: :knitting:

I'm not doing any "labor" this weekend...just knitting! I only have my cell phone for pictures...but, here it is. The first is the "shape shoulders" part of the pattern and the last one is the yarn left...talk about cutting it close!

I'll be happy to model it! :thumbsup: Keep posted for future photos.
