Basketweave Cape

Lion Brand« Wool-Ease« Thick & Quick«

GAUGE:

9 sts and 15 rows = 4"/10cm over basketweave pat foll chart
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.

Basketweave Cape Reviewed by Amy Brooks on 2011-08-03 **
I think this pattern could have been written better. The neck edging instructions are unclear, so I just winged it and did my own thing. It's a beautiful pattern, but you have to do a lot of mental work to figure out what the pattern wants you to do.
