A Knitted Baby Cape!

Baby Cape Closeup This may have been my first knitting project, but it is safe to say I am addicted. I don’t always stick with projects or crafts. Learning is the best part! But knitting really has me hooked. (Get it?!) I got a little ambitious and decided that I wanted to make something for my niece’s 2nd birthday.

I’m no expert and I still have a lot to learn. I used one skein of yarn (111 yards) in Yarn Bee’s “super bulky” eggnog color yarn. I cast on for 55 stitches using size 13 needles. I then just knitted using a basic stitch until almost all the yarn was gone. Then I finished it up using this technique.  Finally, I added a button and a loop to close the cape.

Knitted baby cape I’m so proud of how it turned out. I can’t wait to see pictures of my niece wearing it this winter. She’s a cutie.

Do you all knit? I want to see your projects in the comments!

    Looks lovely! I knit (as you probably already know!) I put most of my project on my blog. I’ve found Ravelry.com really useful as a beginner knitter. (I still class myself as a beginner even though I’ve been knitting for 2 or 3 years now.

    I am trying to find pictures of Airstreams, particularly the inside pics. I lived on one when I was young and it was a memorable time in my life.

      Ann, I’ve yet to post pictures of the inside of our Airstream. It isn’t quite perfect and I am a perfectionist! I don’t know what Airstream model you are looking for, but there are quite a bit of pictures online. Pinterest is a great place to look!
