Yay!
Now when you get to the decreasing part, just follow the directions for the back. When you finish, you'll have 1 less stitch left over than the directions mention, because you cast off that one stitch earlier.

OK...I’m ready for the decreases on the front to shape the shoulder. How come we ended the back on the WS (2d row of the pattern) and now it wants us to end with a RS row? Am I missing something…or is this just a case of “trust the pattern”?

I think it's designed that way, so that it will be easy to start knitting the hood when you finish knitting your sections. They probably have it end on a different row, so the live stitches will be open at the correct sides. Who knows? I'm not a professional knitting designer, so I'm just guessing here.
I'll catch up with you soon!

Would you mind if I mention your name on the Bernat Blog, letting others see your cape?

Ok...here goes! Sure, you can talk about me... I'm still trying to figure out how to post on the new blog...but, I have been there to read your premier post . The only reason I don't post a lot of pictures is because the only camera I have is on my phone...and it takes a lot of steps to put those on the computer (and, as you've seen...they aren't that good).

Yea!!! I knew you'd get there first. !

I have to take a break...I'm ready to sew the shoulders together and I'm not sure how to do that so I'll need some advice when I get back. I'm picking up my sister tomorrow and going to a Christian Women's Conference with my church so I'll check with you next week after I get back.

Good Job!! Can't wait to see!

You can do it, Pam!
I was not that careful with the seaming at the shoulders, because I was in a hurry to get it done, and it looks just fine! I made mine an inch shorter than the directions specified, because I'm a short person (5' 3"). I didn't want it to hang too long, and make me look like a little girl.

The thing that really dresses it up, and makes it look finished is the buttons on the side. Makes all the difference in the world.

I found my buttons at Hobby Lobby on clearance! Yay! They are nice, big, wooden buttons too. I also got a big, pretty green button to put at the spot where the neckline separates, just to give it some strength at that spot. It makes it look good too.

I put it on last night, and walked down the hall to show it to my hubby. He dropped open his mouth, and said, "Wow! That looks GREAT!" Gotta love a hubby that compliments knitting projects.

Here are some photos I took last night:

I hope it's not too late to join...I just saw this and I would love to make it. I think I'll make it in a foresty green colorway. Yahoo, I get to go yarn shopping!

Hello, sueko!

Of course you can join! I'll be checking this discussion often, and will be watching your progress. Have fun with the cape.
