Adventurous Beginner: For those knitters who are ready to learn some new skills or stitch combinations. Stitches include: garter stitch borders, combining knit and purl stitches, and changing colors at the end of a row.
Errata: The cast on has been updated to multiples of 3 + 7.
Notes From the Designer:
Knit, purl, and occasionally change colors at the end of a row—no increases, one lone decrease, no lace—just simple texture from a four-row pattern repeat using a six-color kit designed to fade effortlessly from light gray to terrific teal. This seamless cape is one size fits most, although length and shoulder drape may alter in appearance based on individual frames.
While researching the name for this flowing garment, I discovered The Mistmantle Chronicles by M. I. McAllister, a series of children's stories featuring a cape-wearing, sword-wielding red squirrel. How charming! I guess I know what I'm putting on my reading list next!

- If you prefer a closed cape, simply seam together the sides, starting from the bottom edge and leaving ample room for armholes; for a poncho, seam together the front panels, starting from the bottom edge and leaving room for neckline.
- If you wish to adjust the width of this pattern, cast on in multiples of 3 + 7.

This is a perfect beginner Project.
A lovely pattern for a beginner.
Just started working on this shawl so I've a ways to go, but very excited to be working on this design.
Love this pattern! I am currently working on this. Using a sport weight yarn. Can't wait to see how it turns out.
What a beautiful and classy ruana/wrap. The design seems so straightforward but with the yarn makes it seem to be from a very expensive design house . Bravo! Another winner
I have yet to start this project, but it is a lovely pattern. I look forward to casting it on.
Perfect cover up for a chilly evening outdoors. I plan to knit this in silk so that I can use it in the fall when the nip in the air makes me want to pull on an extra layer.
I really like this pattern and seeing the “Greek” Keys” adds a real kick to the style of the pattern. Elegant and classy!
Beautiful pattern, looks excellent when knitted up definitely recommend it to anyone
I have not started this project yet but it looks like a fun,relaxing knit. The pattern looks easy to follow.
A monumental project that I will definitely have to plan for winter time.
