Crochet A Cape & Skirt Set

Also in that first issue of Good Housekeeping Needlecraft magazine (Fall-Winter, 1968-1969), this crocheted cape and skirt set.

What I love about this set is that it's a lovely bridge between the New Look fashions and mod swinging styles. It's classic and rather iconic vintage without looking "frumpy" or "too futuristic" -- everything a vintage fashion ensemble (and wardrobe building pieces) should be.

Below are the instructions for this pretty set, made with the afghan stitch. (As always, click the images for larger, easier-to-read scans.)
