Argyle Cape

This Argyle Cape is from the Fall/Winter 2005 issue of Knit.1 Magazine. I loved it when this issue came out, and started knitting it in 2006.

The cape starts knitting at the top, then works down through the armholes and the colorwork. I was about half way through the argyle pattern, when I put it in my closet, unfinished.

After a few years in my closet, I've pulled it out and revisited it today. It's kind of sloppy work and I'm not really sure if I'd ever even wear it now, but I bought the yarn and I want to finish it.

Justin took a pict of me working on it today, yarn everywhere. Intarsia is not my specialty, and I have kind of a mess of yarn on the bed.

I'm interested to see what the end result will be like.

Here's a close-up of my work.
