Step into snowy landscapes with confidence this winter by wrapping up safe and warm inside this gorgeous cape. June Onigbanjo's design mixes the styles of a traditional duffle coat with a fashionable poncho, and gives the best of both worlds, by keeping you warm and cosy while still looking stylish. The simple cable design means that even if you're a beginner, you'll be able to tackle this cape with outstanding results. “I enjoy knitting with aran yarn,” June tells us. “It's quite thick so it shows off the cable pattern really well and is nice and warm.”
You can knit this design as a long or a short cape. The long cape will measure 79cm from nape of neck, while the short version will measure 51cm.
