Meaning "Vertical and Horizontal" this lovely pattern designed by Eri @eritml is a patchwork cape composed of three panels worked back and forth and joined as you go. Slipped rib adds thickness, warmth and nuance to the fabric. The default style is a cropped cape, but it can be worn as a vest by changing the way it is worn, or as another type of cape by putting an arm through the neck hole and fastening the ends with shawl pin.
The default shape of the pattern is a long horizontal one. You can however easily customize it since it is composed of several panels. If you want to wear it as a vest, for example, or prefer to make it wider, you can do this by working more rows before and after the slit on the center panel. Please enjoy customizing it according to the style in which you want to wear it.
