Northern Lights children’s cape with knitting pattern

I don’t normally post twice a day! But when I found the pattern for this adorable Nordic style must have knitwear, the Northern Lights Cape by Asami Kawa, I just had to share it immediately with you.

The hooded Northern Lights Cape is for a babies and toddlers, with the example as seen above in blue and white. I think I’d prefer subtle shades of grey and white instead. Anyway, it’s a unisex style, suitable for both boys and girls. The pattern is worked in a Fair Isle method, including steeking.

I had to google ‘steeking’, and found out that in knitting, steeking is a shortcut used to knit garments such as sweaters in the round without interruption for openings or sleeves until the end – I’m learning something new every day!


This pattern is recommended for experienced knitters and it is available in the following sizes: 3-6, 6-12, 12-18, 18-24 months. It can be purchased for $5.99 at knitting website The sweet image at the top of this post is from flickr.


So as the ‘Autumn creeps in again’ – let’s get knitting! You can find some inspiration (with link to patterns) in our Winter Warmer Round up, and there’s more beautiful children’s poncho styles in our post here. Hopefully enough to be inspirational. I have even managed to inspire myself, with my ten thumbs… Look out for a update on my very own beginners project, soon to be featured here on the blog.

How about you, do you have any knitting projects on or in the planning?
