Has anyone made this cute cape? There is a place that is confusing to me. The pattern says to repeat rows "5 to 8 including 2 sets of short rows." It seems as though it should be easy enough, but if anyone has found it a little confusing and has figured out the pattern with different slant, I would love to hear what you did.
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.
I loved the one I made and am working on a 2nd one but I wonder if there is a typo on the hood, short row 6. Should it read purl short row 6, knit row 3 and purl row 4?that way when you start short row 1, you have only 2 ridge rows like the body of the cape? Or does the cape have 3 ridges?
