NOTE: each time you begin a new row the first part in an increase... then you

(Join with a sl st to top of beg ch. Ch3, 3dc around post of beg ch.) twice.
Increase Row: Ch6, dc in

Sl st in first four sts. Ch3, 3dc around post of same st. Sl st to beg ch of
next section. Ch3, 3dc around post of same st.) across to the last section.
Join with a sl st to the last section as before.
Repeat the decrease row
as many times as you want. I used almost 16 ounces for Haley's but you can make
this cape any size you want.
I used Haley's spool knitter to make the tie strings... use that if you have
one. If not you can crochet or braid your ties. Wrap the cape around the intended
person to see where the best place is for the tie strings.
NOTE: I made this cape for
Haley as part of her Halloween Costume.
Remember-- Supervise any child wearing an article of clothing that has tie strings.
