Midnight Rendezvous Capelet

Tip-toe behind alleys and hide yourself in the cloak of darkness in this mysterious knit cape pattern. The Midnight Rendezvous Capelet is a gorgeous cropped cape pattern with a button down front. This is an easy knitting project for novice knitters, and it makes a great addition to your autumn wardrobe. Even though this little cape would be perfect for clandestine meetings, we don't recommend wearing it if you're trying to blend in. It's so cute, you're sure to be noticed.

I am wondering...after each yarn over, knit one, do I slide marker and then yarn over or is yarn over done first? No where in pattern does it mention moving marker.

Does anyone have a finished picture of this? I find it easier to make if I have a visual.

Hello mytictac, we had a temporary glitch in our system. The photo has now been restored. Our apologies for the inconvenience! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

I love this one. I am thinking how great it will look if I make it in the black light weight yarn with the silver flecks running thru it and then using my large acrylic buttons that look like emerald shaped diamonds. It's to go over a black dress. I think it will be fantastic. Thank you so much for offering this.

I luv this pattern, but how can I make this a little longer? Not sure what rows to continue to do so. Thanks

My favorite kind of pattern! I love this look, and will add to the length when I knit the project in cotton yarn that will give the capelet a flowy fitted to one's figure appearance. Cotton yarn can maintain a fresh new look by using starch and fabric softener when washed, then iron. The finished item is worth the effort.

Very nice pattern. For the button/buttonhole bands, do you pick up stitches from the top of the collar (all 6.5 inches) to the front bottom? The yarn is a little dark to tell. Thanks.

Love this pattern! What size buttons would you recommend? Never knit button holes before, so will need to look that up? Any help or suggestions are appreciated. Thx. Hart 3

The buttonholes are part of the pattern, no need to look them up, just follow the pattern exactly.
