Product Details

I love to visit France, so I decided to incorporate into this hooded traveling cape images that I associate with the romantic French countryside: a moonlit château, complete with turrets and a drawbridge, cypress trees, wisteria, and fleur-de-lis (a French floral emblem). To bring my picture to life, I chose wool, silk, and cotton chenille yarns from Rowan. The bulk of the colorwork is done in intarsia, with a small amount of embroidery added after the knitting is done. The back and two fronts are knitted separately to the neck, then worked together with the hood. The front opening, hood, arm slits, and side seams are defined with 3/3 cable twists. Cable twists also draw in the neck. The fishtail frog closure is made from knitted I-cord that is twisted and sewn in place.
