When I was organising my yarn stash back in February I discovered I had quite a few balls of red wool. This pattern immediately jumped into my mind and I cast on straight away. Then I realised I had no idea whether we were having a girl or not and it got set aside. Once we discovered little Squishy was a Miss I jumped back onto it.
Pattern: Little Red by Erika Flory
Wool: Moda Vera Marvel Plain 8ply
This cape is so adorable I am a bit bummed because the smallest size was 18 months so Miss Squishy will not be wearing it for a little while. Hopefully by next winter I will be able to get away with dressing her in it.
I did have a little bit of a mishap in the making of this cape. When it came to joining the hood the pattern said to use the three needle bind off which I had never done. So smart little old me decided to look up a tutorial on youtube. I watched and it looked pretty straight forward. Except.....I didn't properly listen to the first instruction to hold right sides together. I therefore held the wrong sides together resulting in a sort of ridge on the top of the hood. But you know what, I kind of like it! I can't wait for Miss Squishy to wear it.
