You may have noticed that designers and shops have gone CRAZY for knitwear  this season!  Well here’s a newsflash – We knitters are way ahead of the catwalk trends, we’ve ALWAYS been crazy for knitwear!

Along with oversize chunky jumpers , capes and ponchos are ‘all the rage’, we rather like  this pattern from La Droguerie – Cape’ Bois de Vincennes’ – knitted in Benjamine chunky aran 100% wool on 7mm needles.

I decided to jazz it up by crocheting a series of vertical lines to add interest.

NB – Only available as a printed pattern  in French, but with the aide of our EN/FR dictionary it shouldn’t be too hard to translate.DSCN5907DSCN5908DSCN5911DSCN5906
