Nothing says winter like a bit of warmth draped around your shoulders. While you might like to get snug with a blanket behind closed doors, why not try this cute woollen cape for when you’re out and about! Perfectly suited to vintage or recycled fabrics, you can even combine the two and turn that old blanket into a new fashion accessory. Download the pattern below for free and cosy up with your sewing machine. Match your cape with a cute hat or headpiece and a clutch and you’ll be ready to welcome winter with open arms!
