Origami KNITTING PATTERN

I have just finished knitting this most unusual sweater/cape/hoodie and am just amazed at how it all went together!
This is a new pattern designed for the Fiber Factor knit designer contest sponsored by Skacel company. If you are a member of Ravelry you can see the pattern called "bravura". The designer Tracy ha:s just lead a KAL (knit along) to make it and answered questions by the participants while we knitted it.

I wanted to knit this ever since I saw the original since I was mystified how it could be knit all in one piece and have all those layers on the back. As you can see, from the back it looks like a cardigan sweater with a cape over it, finished up with a hood over all. Yes, it was knit all in one piece and is the most amazing pattern design I have ever seen, on the level with all those Issey Miyake patterns I used to sew! Now we need some cold weather so I can wear it.
