Pattern description from Vogue Knitting, Spring/Summer 2007: “A pot of gold’s got nothing on the rich vibrancy of Linda Morse’s rainbow cape. It’s knit from the top down in an easy increase pattern with ten stops on the color wheel of ‘Cashmere Breeze’ from S. Charles Collezione/Tahki.Stacy Charles. A stockinette border picked up after the fact crisply edges the wrap.”
