I'm planning on using straight needles to make triangular sections which I'll sew or crochet  together to make the cape.  I haven't decided how many sections yet.  As for yarn, I'm playing with combining 2 different kinds (trying random assortments of what I have in the stash).

I'm using straight needles for the 2 bigger sections mammalion. My needles are also a little smaller than the ones called for, so I just cast on an extra 10 stitches. I'm nearly half way through the middle section now and its looking OK (knits up FAST). I know I'll need to sew it up but thats not a major problem. I'll try and get my lovely friend (and midwife) to take a pic with her digital camera next time I see her.

i too have thought of making this on straights, and then either sewing up along one side, or, lacing a ribbon through it instead, criss cross fashion (all the way down the seam) to fasten it. Just another idea.

I think I've got my project planned out.  While I could start with US 17, I've opted to start with US 15 (10 mm) straight needles and cast on a few extra stitches.  I'll still be using US 13 (9 mm) and US 9 (5.5 mm) for the later sections.  Granted, since I'm just starting, I reserve the right to rip out my initial idea and start again. Wink

I'm using different colors of Lion's Brand Homespun, planning to use the colors to make 4 different "triangles" that will make up the cape.  If my odd little brainstorming works out, I may be able to knit the triangles toether as I go and not need to do any sewing in the end.  I'll kept y'all updated on how this experiment goes (I'm borrowing an idea from tatting).

So, I started knitting it on straights.  So far so good.  Smiley

Yay ladies!  Grin
I am on the last 5 inches of mine and I hate to say it but this wool looks sooo much nicer knitted on my 5mm circular that I have considered ripping it back and buying circs for the first 2 sections. However... the wolf is currently glued to the door like a postage stamp so new needles are not a soon thing. Im gonna finish this one and wear it for awhile anyway. I'll try and get pictures. BTW, I was thinking that if there is any wool left I could make a cami to go under it so when I lift it to nurse my tummy is left both warm and matching.  Wink
What do you think? Honeymoon in Paris anyone?

After some ripping and redoing myself, I'm in the midst of "triangle" (or, more appropriately, trapezoid) #2. 

The matching cami sounds snuggily warm.

Well I finished it and its cute!  Grin
It kind of clings to my breasts but it looks OK cos it hits the downslope too, so you don't just see furry pyramid woman (my normal look). Unfortunately my baby hates it, (he likes to be able to see the world and the whole diner Wink) but he does fit under if I need to be super sneaky nursing. I had to stop doubling the wool for the last section (at the top) as it got too thick and I only made that level about 4inches. I'm now knitting a tube on a 4mm ish circular needle with the leftover wool which may turn into a matching cami if I guesstimated the number of stitches right and the wool holds out. Wish me luck. I'm glad I finished it instead of ripping it now. Not a moment too soon. Its snowing here. Pretty. White. Cold.
