Since I never found enough chenille to make another identical cape, I had to use another pattern and another fiber.
I had already made a few of these capes for friends, but this one's for me!!!
It's made on the Passap using AX⬅ /AX ⬅ and pushers on both beds (pattern no 31 in one of the old blue pattern books), alternating purple and green every two rows, which makes it reversible with a different color on each side! You don't even need a Deco!
It's just a big rectangle that's split in the middle front. Since it's an extremely stretchy pattern, using the width of the Passap makes it wide enough for anyone, so there's no need for seaming! I made mine extra long because I'm tall and because it's warmer that way... It's all about comfort!!!
The only tricky part, is remembering exactly where your pushers are when you separate the knit in front. You need to write everything down, so that you will be able to continue the second front side with exactly the right pusher arrangement and the right color.
I chose to make a round neck opening but it really isn't necessary. The cape still fits perfectly on the shoulders without it.
