GAUGE:

14 sts + 20 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS).

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Library Capelet Reviewed by noemia francen on 2014-01-28 ****
Love it!I knitted this capelet in Jan 2012. Using the yarn & needles recommended for this pattern. The outcome was a little small for me. I think it will drap nicely if you're a size 7-10(small. I'm planning to knit another one.This time I'll add more stitches.
It's quick and easy too.
