Made this used super bulkey one strand. Came beautiful but it is small. Going to add a few extra inches on top to add a finished look

It turns out rather lumpy and awful. I don't think it's wearable.

I love this pattern except I initially used the old uncorrected pattern and had to start over after about 1/2 way through. Be sure to get the corrections. Corrections make 100% difference.

I was so excited to try this pattern, but had a lot of difficulty with it. After reading reviews, I knew I was going to have to make it bigger than the original pattern. I used size 15 needles, and bulky weight (6) yarn, and ended up casting on 192 stitches, adding 20 rows, and slightly altering the ending to get the fit that I wanted. In the end I got a caplet that I love, but not without some trial and error and - ultimately - wasted time.

It's pretty was too bulky. Double strands of the yarn was too difficult to work. I didn't finish the project.

I knew as soon as I looked at the model this cape would never fit me. She is painfully thin and probably an x-small. For us real women the extra 24 stitches are needed and because the poncho in the picture didn't look finished, actually sloppy along the edges, I added 2" of stockingnet stitch as well before I started the cabling and added a little extra at the collar for a "rolled" affect. Also, Homespun is not a favorite of mine so I used the Wool Ease Chuncky. The result was a tighter stitch and too me a much more sophisticated look.

This turned out so stylish (I added the extra stitches and 10 extra rows per suggestion of other reviewers)! I love it! After several tries I had to break down and get stitch markers because I kept getting interrupted and lost count. Great introduction to cables. I plan to make more for friends and family.

I loved this pattern. I also tried it with two strands held together and without the cabling. Each turned out great!

I loved the photo. Luckily when I tried the pattern, it had already been revised. But it was quite small. So I ripped it up and started again.

I added 24 stitches, and 10 additional rows. I know one of the reviews suggested adding 20, but I felt it was enough with 10.

The result after the revisions was great. I have now made 2 and am working on a 3rd. This will make a great gift for anyone.

I finished this in two evenings--and it is so cute! I'm going to make this for several twenty-something friends. (I was able to make mine with only one skein, but barely).

The new pattern is accurate and straight-forward.
