The pattern was so easy to follow and that was down to the writer with their step by step instructions. As a regular knitter I have always found stocking stitch with a garter stitch border does not always produce a neat finish and is a little bit baggy. I will be knitting the cape again but with a pattern instead of stocking stitch to see if it will achieve a better finish.
NICE pattern and easy to follow - made it longer so that it could be a “Cloak of Invisibility” for a Hermione doll! :o)
I found the pattern difficult to understand so I just got the measurements and made the rest of it up - sorry
My sis knitted the cape to add to the wardrobe I made for a Xmas doll donated to a local toy drive. She said it was an easy pattern. It turned out well, but if you use the buttonhole option, don't use a small round shank button, because it won't stay done up and you'll have to replace it which isn't always easy on a knit.
