I had a few balls (4) of an 8ply denim coloured cotton. I decided that instead of making a thick, winter wrap, I would make a spring/summer wrap. Just enough coverage to keep the chill off. It could still be worn in a number of different ways depending on where you positioned the toggle button. In this case, it became a 4-way cable wrap.
I started knitting with the disappointment you get of having to knit whilst not being sure how far you are going to reach. I kept watching my wool and when I judged that I had enough to finish by completing a crocheted slip stitch all the way round, I stopped. This ended up being 90cm as I made sure that I finished at the end of a cable section.
To finish, I started at the top corner, slip stitched all the way round and when I came back to my start point, I chained 12 to form a loop for the toggle button and finished. From here, it's just a matter of sewing on the button and it's ready to go.
I was very happy though, it's just the right length for a summer cape and looks great with a pair of slim fitting jeans.
I am seriously tempted to purchase enough wool to make the winter version. It's quite a delightful pattern.
