Wearing- Knitted Cape

Many years ago I bought myself a large knitted blanket that turned into a poncho via a long zipper. It's been a favourite winter staple - it can be thrown on the bed as an extra layer, be a pic-nic blanket when traveling, baby blanket while out or a huge delicious jacket to keep the chill from my skin.

When I saw this cape at Country Road recently- it also had to be mine.
