Rasta Cape

In Garments, Patterns, Shop sample available, Super bulky weight yarn by Shannon

Sometimes, you just want something a bit… saucier than a cowl or a scarf. That’s where this cape comes in – using mesh lace and an I-cord button loop, this is a quick and easy project that really ups your fancy quotient.
