This cape pattern is a one-size-fits-most, up to about 1X. One of my fantastic testers is working on a plus size version and we will have that ready as soon as possible.

Pattern Notes:

Feather stitch = * Yo and pull up a loop in same ch-sp (3 loops on hook), yo and pull up a loop in the skipped st directly below from row 1 (5 loops on hook), yo and pull up a loop in next ch-sp (7 loops on hook). Yo pull through all 7 loops. Ch-1 to close the stitch. *

Do not forget to include the chain-1 at the end of each feather.

Even numbered rows are “right side” and odd numbered rows are “wrong side”.

The ch-1 at the beginning of the row does not count as a stitch.

Work a bit tighter on the longer loops of the feathers. This helps them from becoming too loose and easily snagged.

Do not weave in ends until you are completely finished. Use the tails to cinch up any holes/spaces near the arm slits.

IMPORTANT! The beginning of the cape will curl/ripple and may appear too tight. If on gauge, and the initial chain is loose, this should resolve itself.
