I love this cape! However, the picture looks like it ends with some garter stitch rows, but the pattern suggests otherwise. Should the last few repeats be plain knit?

I think you need super chunky.

The last raglan increase is made on row 33. To make the cape bigger continue to make increases as established for 6-8 more rows. Then continue to follow pattern

"One size" never works for me - too small. Across my shoulders is 20 inches. Can you tell me what the measurement is of the pattern? How can I increase across shoulders? I can always add rows for the length.

Can you suggest how I could amend the pattern if I wanted to use a smaller needle for a finer appearance? I hope to make two versions of this, the original for me, a finer version for a friend.

How and where can I put in slits for arms in this pattern? And how do you do it?
September 19, 2015
To make slits you have to work from 2 balls of yarn (3 balls for 2 slits). YOu can start 1-2 inches below last raglan increase and 10-12 stitches from the beginning and the end of the row.

ok, but using 3 balls of yarn how is it done? I never tried anything like this before. Please help me.

i just started to knit this and I see several errors to begin with. The stich count seems to be off.
I cast on 33 stitches then purl the the count doesn't work if you knit 11 stitches? I'm I reading this wrong?

Hi barb to respond to your question is don't count the m1 then the count will be right ..... Lots of people make that mistake..... I've done it myself a few times......

I have printed the pattern and was excited to start. I have cast on the 33 sts and purled the 1 row. Now where do I go? The Row 1 is for alot more sts than 33... Did so something get missed in the pattern or am I missing something in the Direstions? Please help!! Thanks

I just finished this cape. It is the largest project to date. I'm a novice. My girlfriend taught me to knit after three surgeries the past 30 months and many wks in bed, a godsend. Now for the I cords and complete. I am 5'6" and wanted it longer so I did extend the length. I knitted the collar add on backward but left it, a different twist. Turned out fabulous, surprised myself. Go for it, not as hard as you think.

LOVE this cape! The bottom looks like it is several rows of garter stitch- are my eyes seeing it incorrectly, or is the cape "anchored" in garter? I do not see that indication in the pattern. Also, both sides of front opening look a bit like garter stitch also, is it? if not- how do you keep the stockinette edging from rolling?

How many total stitches decreased in the collar? Is it a total of 4 stitches, or 4 stitches in each of the two rows ?

This looks lovely! Any idea on how one would be able to slip some arm holes in? Just like slits. Like the Victorian/Edwardian cape coats. I'm guessing around row 30ish... maybe 40 but I don't know what I'd need to do.

Would like the answer to this question, Slits for arms would be so much more convenient.

I can't wait to make this cape, I have been looking for a pattern and this one caught my eye. However, I am bigger than "one size fits most". How do I figure in how many stitches to add to make the cape fit? I am size 2X across the shoulders and chest...

Do you have a link or a how-to on "picking up stitches." I don't understand what that means when you get to the neckline. Thanks!
