’I never play without my cape.’
Elsa is a pattern for a cape worked from the top down and in the round and with a steek. The main portion of the body is worked in stockinette with the bottom edge, bands, and collar worked in Linen Stitch. Work in one colour or with contrasting bands and edges, plus a little slip stitch detail along the bottom edge. A great project for your favourite big button that has been in hiding!
