Allsorts Cape

Posted on

A new Ambah’s festive KAL design for 2022.

Find The Allsorts Cape pattern on Ravelry here and Etsy here.

Is it a throw, is it a wrap? The Allsorts Cape has you covered, offering a variety of ways to style, making it perfect for an extra layer for bracing the cool outdoors, a perfect cover when working at your desk or crafting by the fire. Designed to make the most of a 24 colour mini skein kit, the Allsorts Cape will be a fun project to plan to use a mini skein set, alternating full skeins or all those lovely leftover allsorts of yarn in your stash. The length and width are simple enough to adjust to suit your requirements. Have fun making your Allsorts Cape a wild collection of colours or keep it mellow with a fade or neutral shades. Liquorice Allsorts are favourite sweets from my childhood and often came to mind when I was knitting my cape, so the Allsorts Cape it is.
