To fluff or not to fluff?

That is the question.

Here is the finished baby cape with fluff:

And here it is without:

I can’t decide which way I prefer.  The loopy stitch took many tries to figure out so I would hate to waste such a herculean effort. I also sewed the loop section NEXT to the finished cape edge, so the hood seems a bit bigger and blocks a little wind for Sweet Pea BUT it does have a baby-bonnet type loom to it. And I’m not sure about that.

Off to finish her Socktober Socks before NaKnitSweMo (National Knit a Sweater Month) begins tomorrow. I’ve got my yarn, I’ve got my project, don’t have my swatch yet… where are you at?

  1. Oh – that’s hard… I keep going back and forth, but I think no fluff :o)

  2. I like it with out the looped stitches. it’s pretty enought plain.


  3. I say no fluff…it’s just too cute. Unless of course, you did a contrasting furry trim…like something you would get at Joann’s by the yard. It’s so cute, Dana!

  4. I, personally, like the fluff – I think it’s way cute!

  5. No fluff. I think it’s beautiful with out it, very sleek & english looking 🙂

  6. It makes me want to learn to crochet — something between the fluff (I keep thinking of all the things those loops could get caught on) and plain.

  7. I could go either way…the fluff is kind of frisky and fun….but I think that no fluff is more practical and classic

  8. FLUFF, FLUFF, FLUFF!!! Sweet Pea is a beautiful little girl! Wow!!!!

  9. She’s adorable either way! But I think I like it better with the fluff! She is just so cute and growing like a weed too! LOL

  10. I think the fluff is wicked cute! (though of course she by herself is wicked cute)

  11. I love both! Can you just make another one?

    By the way I noticed on another post you were making handmade gift. I have a list of ideas/ tutorials on my blog if you are interested.
