the Florence Cape
Posted 27 May 2007 - 10:23 AM
I wrote up the pattern quite some time ago but then it took me a while to finish the actual cape so it got lost in a pile of pattern notes. <my bad>
Using small amount of red and some blue WW yarn and a 4.mm & 5.mm hooks.
This pattern really did create the look of strong shoulders that I wanted in this pattern so it is not the usual cape pattern that I would have tried.
With Red and 4.mm hook…
Chain 5, join to form ring, ch 25 and hdc across. Break off red.
Attach blue in stitch next to button loop and work sc around both sides of the red collar piece. Work 3sc into both “corners” of the end .
Change to 5 mm hook
Row 1: work FPsc in 1, 2FPsc in next around collar piece. (I have 39 sc)
Row 2: hdc around ending with 2hdc in last (40 hdc)
Row 3: hdc around but work 3hdc in stitches 10 and 11 and in stitches 29 and 30.
Use yarn or something to mark these 6 stitches on each side.
Row 4:hdc across but work 2 hdc in all of the marked stitches.
Row 5: (hdc in 5, 2 hdc in next) twice, 2 dc in next 5, 2 hdc in next, hdc in 19, 2 hdc in next, 2 dc in next 5, (2hdc in next, hdc in 5) twice.
Row 6: hdc evenly across
Row 7: Work dc in marked stitch area but otherwise work hdc across
Row 8 to next to last row – hdc evenly across.
Last Row: DC across evenly
You may want your cape longer or shorter so that is why the directions read as they do.
Attach a suitable “uniform” button at neck.
Tidy all ends.

I think I will add this into the original Florence post but just in case I am putting it here as well.

When in doubt... make a hat. And feel free to *pin* me.

It's not a home unless there's a cat messing with my yarn...
