i want this


 Sometime a while ago (November of 2007, apparently), I was browsing in The Gap and saw this cute cape/poncho thing.  I tried it on and asked my friend to take a picture.  I was thinking, "I could knit that!!"  And then I forgot about it until today, for some reason.  I'm so happy I still had the picture.  I think it's going to go into my queue for stuff to try to knit in 2010.  I wish I could remember more about the construction but I'm thinking maybe doing it top-down would work.  I'm not at all sure how to put the pocket on there but that shouldn't be too hard to figure out ... will it?  I do remember that it was knitted in a bulky/chunky yarn, and I think the Fair Isle section will be easy enough, even for an inexperienced Fair Isle knitter like me!

I'd be happy for any tips and tricks that anyone is willing to share, though :-)

Enjoy what's left of the weekend ...



  1. Up and down? As I look at it I think top to bottom? Starting at the neck, making it on round needles and increasing? A cap would work that way? Then add square or rectangle and top stitch for the pocket? But, that would be continuous, wouldn't leave actual arm openings.

    Hum....interesting idea, love it and can see why you want one. Keep me posted, and good luck.
