CAPUCCINO

Description

This cape/poncho is a timeless, very feminine, very warm design. Perfect for the off-season. With its two slits at the waist on both front and back, you can slide your favourite belt through them and look a million bucks. Or you can wear it loose for a more gypsy style. It’s knitted in one go, no seams, yeah! It has pockets on the front, there’s nothing worse than outerwear without pockets. I must warn you, this jumbo piece takes a long time to knit, so my advice to you is to start knitting in the very beginning of summer. Pictured in a size Petite
