Wyandotte cape

This unfortunately turned out a bit small. It looks nice but only measures 74 cm at the top although it started out at 94 cm. the taniko is from a maori knitting book which I have adapted for this piece.  I like the feathers but am bothered because its so small and yet too big for kindi kids. Oh well I will just have to learn from my mistakes and try again. I think the problem was that I used this string single and therefore had to pull tightly so that no feather bits showed on the inside. I just got tighter and tighter. I now remember why I prefer to use this string double.
