A lady’s Cape and hat from the 1930’s specially
designed for those cold and gloomy winter days.
The cape is worked on a circular needle so some
experience knitting on one would be helpful,
otherwise just take your time and make sure the
knitting doesn’t twist as you knit. The Fez style
Hat is worked on 2 needles so nice and simple
and it has a cute little bow to top it off.
The original used yarn was Copleys ‘Knoplaine’ Wool,
which apparently looked like Persian Lamb. I can’t find
any reference to this yarn so am assuming that its a
4 ply. So an Astrakhan or faux fur 4 ply type yarn
would probably work.
Pair of No. 10 (3.25mm) needles a No. 10 circular needle
and a spare No. 10 needle.
You will need about 13oz (370g) of yarn for the Jacket
and 3oz Cap
Tension: about 6.5 sts. and 8.5 rows to 1 inch
Measurements to fit: Cape 34-36 ins. Bust and
Hat 21-22 inch Head
The needles are old sizes so I have included a
conversion chart to help
The pattern comes as one easy to download
and print PDF
