Ugly Christmas Cape Knitting Pattern

In 2019, I found myself stitching at top speed, producing a sweater in less than 2 days for a community Christmas event. Look, I did it for the kids 😂

One of my professors snapped the pictures and we all had a great time. After all the fanfare was over, I threw my leftover yarn in a corner, only to rediscover it in late 2020. I wasn't really feeling the holiday spirit last year and I knew that just wasn't right!

I immediately started knitting something that would be almost as atrocious as the previous year's sweater. Yes... you guessed it, an ugly Christmas cape. If you or your office is having an ugly garment contest this year, be the *bell *of the ball this year with this quick and fun knitting pattern!
