About 6 weeks ago, I posted about the Kveta Hat that I had the opportunity to test knit for Monika Sirna. I also had the pleasure to test knit the matching cape, but I just realized that I never posted about it! Bad blogger...

The Kveta Cape is a sweet little accessory than any girl would love. I made another Kveta Hat to match the cape - because, really, who can resist? The cape has a lot more finishing than I typically go for, but it was well worth it. The pattern has you hand sew ribbon and snaps onto the ribbing for closure.

Like the first hat I knit, I decided to crochet the flowers for both the hat and cape. It's all personal preference, I much prefer to crochet something than fiddle with i-cord. If you look at the finished projects, there are some stunning FOs with i-cord flowers, embroidery and buttons. These two projects are the perfect canvas for some girlie embellishments.

While I was knitting this, I worried that Grace wouldn't like wearing a cape. However, once I got it on her, she didn't seem to mind at all. The best part - no sleeves to mess with! It definitely got her seal of approval for that one.

As a side note, I re-blocked both pieces after I took the pictures and the cape has a lot more positive ease around her elbows now. I'm already planning a darker color cape for her to wear this fall. Any suggestions? I'm thinking a cranberry or deep raspberry color.
