InStyle Magazine to Ravelry, Matchmaker Vol 2 – Capes and Plaid

Vol 2 is all capes and plaid. Along with the pictures of sweaters in the September issue of InStyle magazine were the photos of tartan and capes. I love both, so it was incredible fun to search for applicable knits. It was also very easy to find matches in both attribute and style. Yesterday’s matches were a stretch in some cases, but I think I nailed it today.

The capes pictured below are not knits, but why stop at sweaters?

Capes

There are so many beautiful capes on Revelry. I’ve wanted one for years. I flip between a large poncho style to something like the first pictured cape below that falls mid torso. Jackets, capes and ponchos seem like great knitting projects because these items you can wear year after year, and they’re meant for warmth (unlike knitted lingerie for instance). I’m hoping this wave of cape love lasts for a long time.

Feast your eyes on these lovelies:
