Designed in collaboration with my amazing son, and released for his birthday.
“Mom, can you knit me a cape? With stripes up and down in the middle and wings on the side? And can I tie it on and FLY?”
Modular construction, easily customizable for multiple sizes and colors. I have included a lot of photos and a lot of text… so be prepared! My test knitters and I tried different yarn weights and a mix of colors. The pattern is easily customizable.
Includes a blank coloring page… SCORE!
