Pattern by Jennifer Dassau

Capes are the new coats for fall, and Plaidscape features a topography of colors knit seamlessly from the top down in bulky weight wool. Choose classic colors, or indulge your rainbow fantasies, and learn a new skill for making plaid without stranding. The horizontal colors are knit as stripes using one color at a time per row in a wide rib, then the vertical stripes are added at the end with a crochet hook in the purl columns; no crochet skills are needed – it’s as simple as picking up dropped stitches.

Plaidscape is worked seamlessly from the top down in a horizontal plaid pattern to the end of the wide elbow-length sleeves. The sleeves are then divided from the body, which continues to grow in an A-line shape to a curved hem. Full written instructions are included, as well as charts for the raglan increases. Applied I-cord neatly finishes the front edges, and the double-breasted front closes with I-cord frogs and knots. Interesting to knit and fun to wear, Plaidscape is a coat with a difference.
