The 1st and last stitches of the pattern are selvedge stitches. Selvedge stitches are used to make the edges of the work even and smooth 2. You should slip the first stitch as if to knit and purl the last stitch.

My cape came out nice but hood does not look like picture. Must be an error in instructions for hood. Has anyone tried this in a larger size needle than the size 4 .

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

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!

I agree about the confusion. I have taken it back twice, and today I took it back to the beginning to see if I can make sense out of it. I now trying to do the repeat starting from AFTER the 6th row so that there are only 2 raised rows between the short rows. I am thinking that will make it look more like the picture.

Thank you, I can't believe how easy this is. I just got back into knitting and was worried about the turning but it wasn't so bad. Thank you again.
