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

I made this in peacock blue for my 84 year old mother for Christmas. She had already worn it 4 times before Christmas so I am quite sure, from the look in her picture she sent me, she loves it. The pattern was easy to follow and worked up beautifully. I used Red Heart With Love yarn and I am very happy I bought this pattern. Now I have been asked to make one for my oldest daughter for her birthday in March. Thank you so much for this awesome pattern.

Pattern is easy to follow, although I found myself nit-picking a bit while using the pattern. Both blue and white pictures above show the buttons completely in the wrong place - they aren't using the buttonholes at all, which means it hangs a bit differently on a live person. The white picture above shows edging around the arm holes, but the pattern doesn't include any edging around the arm holes. Blue picture shows arm holes as the pattern describes (no edging).

It took me about a week to complete my cape, not including hood (haven't decided if I want to do the hood yet). I used 30 ounces of yarn (Red Heart acrylic, worsted weight), which includes a small pocket that I added onto the inside to hold my cellphone and trimming/edging around the armholes. I ended up using two colors, with some rows in a complementary color, which I thought gave it some additional visual interest (and allowed me to use up some leftover yarn!) Like others, I find the arm holes are somewhat too long (although the upper edge of them is good for me, the lower edge of the opening is too low). The only stitch count errors I found were of my own fault, so I believe that those mentioned by others previously have been fixed.

There are a number of places in the pattern where several rows in a row are virtually identical, but instead of writing it as repeat X row X times or XX-XX, they are written as several individual rows. There's no white space between the rows, a little bit would make it easier for us with older eyes to read. Also, the pattern has the "chain 3, turn" at the beginning of each row instead of at the end of each row (which is more common way to write patterns, but not necessarily a pattern-writing standard). Also, it lists abbreviations of stitches that aren't used (i.e., hdc, tr) and there's at least three typographical/grammatical errors in the page-long copyright notice. Like I said, just nitpicking some :)

Despite my nitpicking above (hey, when you pay as much for a single pattern as you often pay for an entire book, you can nitpick, right?), I very much enjoyed crocheting this. I especially liked how it pretty much self-assembles, and how I was able to check the size and "hang" of it easily as I went along.
