I absolutely love this pattern! I bought to make the cape as a birthday gift to myself. I used the lionsbrand heartland yarn in a gray speckled charcoal, and it's beautiful! I worked it up on an I-9 hook ( my stitches tend to be smaller) and added a few rows for a longer length, and for the truly crafty, I even adapted the pattern to make a matching scarf!!! It was so easy to make, and I can't wait to wear it! Thanks so much Maggie!

Could someone please help? I am absolutely in love with this pattern!! For the past couple of weeks, I have had some difficulty getting past Row 8. I am stuck on the part that reads: "[dc in next dc} across to next Shell". I am not sure as to what I should do here. Any and all help would be greatly, greatly appreciated...as I am trying to complete this for my mother-in-law as a Christmas gift.

I love capes and I really liked the looks of this one, so I ordered it as a PDF download. I used Berroco Vintage DK in Indigo and used a size H Boyle hook. It was really fun to make and the size is absolutely spot on. I did add a few rows because I wanted it just a bit longer. I'm looking for some really unique buttons for the finishing touch. I can't wait until we get some cool weather here so I can wear it!

I Purchased this pattern as a kindle download and I am so happy that I did. I completed my cape today using a cream colored variegated yarn to break up the monotony of one color. I love my cape but using a 5mm crochet hook made it a bit too big for me. When I brought it to work to show a co-worker, everyone raved about it and asked me to make them one, it really made all of the time spent on it worth it. I just wish that I lived in a cooler climate so that I can wear it longer. I have decided to gift the current one and make another with a smaller hook and lighter yarn. The pattern is very easy to follow and as long as you read everything over once before you begin, you shouldn't have any issues. I have already bought my second pattern to try!

My cousin's daughter fell in Love with it and I told her that I would make it for her. It's finished but I haven't had the chance to get it to her yet. It's beautiful in antique teal. I'm going to make myself one, too. And I might get conned into making others. It's a great pattern.

Love this pattern! It's very simple to follow. The cloaks make wonderful presents! I did my first one in pure wool. It was fun! Definitely worth the $$ to purchase this pattern.

I love this pattern and will be making more in the future. I plan to make them for presents. It is an easy work up and worth the money that I paid for it. I wish that this pattern came in a child's size because I would love to make it for my daughter and her girls.

Love this pattern and this hooded cape. It does get a bit chilly here in Florida during the winter and I wanted something that was different and "coat like", this fit the bill. I get tons of complements on it when I wear it. It's an easy pattern and can be done quickly. I'm a 3X and it did fit me so if anyone is wondering it will fit them as well if you are a 3X. Lovely Lovely Lovely cape. Thanks Maggie
