Knitscene Summer 2011: Starboard Cape

The brand new Knitscene Summer preview went live the other day and Courtney has a really cute design in the issue featuring Canopy Fingering in Macaw.

The Starboard Cape is knit from side to side on a larger-than-typical needle to create a little capelet with a lot of drape and shaping.  The pattern is written for two neck edge circumferences and 2 lengths, so there are a lot of options for customization!

The drape, softness and airy feel of the Canopy Fingering knit at a looser gauge creates a perfect layering piece for the summer, and the buttons at the neck and quick tacking under the arms are the only finishing on this seamless and versatile piece!
