As a general rule, capes and ponchos are not at the top of my shopping list. I know they are currently on-trend but I find so many of them to be either unattractive or impractical. We don't have cold enough weather here to benefit from the tradition wool cape with cozy hood or wrap. However the more recent lightweight, knit designs in shrugs and capes are probably a lot easier to wear and may even have a functional place in our trans-seasonal wardrobes.
If you'd like to learn my method for creating Twist Drape Patterns I have a detailed worksheet for making Jersey Twist Patterns. For just a few dollars you'll get the same training you'd get if you came to the workshop in my studio.
