One of our lovely resident knitters, Mary, whipped up this little beauty for the shop using Tidal Yarns alpaca blend in dk weight. Now, you may be asking yourself the same thing I did: “Why a cape?” When Phiona told me that the hot knitting item this winter would be capes I wasn’t feeling it at first. It seemed to me like something from a bygone era, but now looking at the Emily cape I see that this is exactly what makes it so charming. Simple feminine elegance that is practical. The gentley scalloping edges of the Emily cape are such a throwback to a classic sexy librarian that I begin imagining a slinky black dress with it for a night on the town.
How would you wear it?
