My friend Anne had taken a picture of me wearing the cloak mentioned in Tuesday’s knitting post. Here it is:

  1. Very, very pretty!!!!! I especially like all the purples, and purplish blues!!

  2. Haven’t you seen this one? I finished it ages ago. If it is warm enough, I’ll wear it to Ladysmith Black Mambazo.

  3. I LOVE that cloak! It’s so colorful and Spring-like. I’m learning how to crochet and one of my ultimate goals is to make a funky lab coat (I basically live there, so why not?) that has short-ish sleeves so I don’t get messy in my bench work. I would love to create a color pattern as nice as yours.

  4. Brigit,

    The cloak is heavy. Crochet might be lighter, but use light weight yarns.

    To choose colors, I used one of the variegated yarns, the one between the yellow and blue diamonds, as the base and everything else had to sort of go with it. Actually, on the back this yarn was used to form the center panel of diamonds.

    Another way to choose colors is to decide that every yarn has to have one color. The yarns can be variegated but they all must contain green for example.

    Finally, I follow Kaffe Fasset’s color choice principle, which is an approximation of this:

    If your colors aren’t working, add another twenty.

    Good luck.
