As I don't know how to crochet, can I use a garter stitch? What does "sc" mean?
With the yarn B crochet 3 rows of sc along all edges of the cape and the hood.

SC is "single crochet". There are good youtube videos showing how to sc around a knitting project, that will help you.

I have knitted for 40 plus years, BUT I CANNOT figure out this pattern. I so wanted to make it for my granddaughter. When you get to row 5, do start to knit to the last 5 stitches then do the wrap stitch or do you start right at the beginning slip a stitch, knit 5 then turn? go to end and do that again before you go to row 6. Thanks for any help.

You will not be knitting across the whole row. Only the number of stitches indicated.
For row 5. Slip the first stitch. Knit 5 stitches. Do your wrap and turn. The wrong side of your work should be facing you. You should have 6 stitches on your left needle and 29 on your right needle.
Purl back across the 6 stitches on your left needle. (Not all the stitches in the row are knitted)
Turn your work so the right side is facing you.
Row 7 - slip the first stitch, knit the next 10 stitches. Do your wrap and turn. Wrong side should be facing you with 11 stitches on your left needle and 24 stitches on your right needle.
Row 8 - purl the stitches on your left needle.
These are called short rows. When knitted this way, it creates a wedge.
If you are able, take a look at the video for how to do the wrap/turn.
Hope this helps!

There appears to be an error in the instructions for the hood. It says repeat rows 3-10 3 more times. Then it starts with row 27. These numbers work if you only repeat rows 3-10 twice. I haven't sewn it together yet. Did anyone else find this error?
