"This is the 8th or 9th dead link I've hit this morning trying to look at the patterns from one newsletter, i can only presume that the person putting the newsletter together does not have time to check and verify the links."
"New pattern, first time I've seen a picture of it on this site. Unfortunately, there is a problem with the link, when you click on it you receive an "oops" message, that the pattern is no longer available."
"Not sure why you would leave your comment on an entirely different pattern but anyway, the pattern actually specifies and gives step by step instructions on what the chain 5 is- (Bring st back to left-hand needle. K1) 5 times Chain 5 made. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K4tog. Rep from to last 2 (3-1) st(s). Chain 5. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K3 (4-2) tog. Fasten off."

Tip-toe behind alleys and hide yourself in the cloak of darkness in this mysterious knit cape pattern. The Midnight Rendezvous Capelet is a gorgeous cropped cape pattern with a button down front. This is an easy knitting project for novice knitters, and it makes a great addition to your autumn wardrobe. Even though this little cape would be perfect for clandestine meetings, we don't recommend wearing it if you're trying to blend in. It's so cute, you're sure to be noticed.

I am wondering...after each yarn over, knit one, do I slide marker and then yarn over or is yarn over done first? No where in pattern does it mention moving marker.
Apr 20, 2020
You never move a marker in a pattern unless the pattern tells you to, so you will work the stitches keeping the marker in place.

Does anyone have a finished picture of this? I find it easier to make if I have a visual.

I love this one. I am thinking how great it will look if I make it in the black light weight yarn with the silver flecks running thru it and then using my large acrylic buttons that look like emerald shaped diamonds. It's to go over a black dress. I think it will be fantastic. Thank you so much for offering this.

I luv this pattern, but how can I make this a little longer? Not sure what rows to continue to do so. Thanks

To lengthen the garment you will follow the directions that say "repeat last 2 rows 23(25, 27) more times, this is the section that can be repeated as many times as you like to add more length.

My favorite kind of pattern! I love this look, and will add to the length when I knit the project in cotton yarn that will give the capelet a flowy fitted to one's figure appearance. Cotton yarn can maintain a fresh new look by using starch and fabric softener when washed, then iron. The finished item is worth the effort.

Very nice pattern. For the button/buttonhole bands, do you pick up stitches from the top of the collar (all 6.5 inches) to the front bottom? The yarn is a little dark to tell. Thanks.

Love this pattern! What size buttons would you recommend? Never knit button holes before, so will need to look that up? Any help or suggestions are appreciated. Thx. Hart 3

The buttonholes are part of the pattern, no need to look them up, just follow the pattern exactly.
