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.

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.

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?

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?
