  12. Hi Marianna, in this Hooded Cape pattern after 19 th Row it's written 112 stitches but somehow I am getting 124 stitches why?
    Have I made a mistake or is it misprint? Pls help.
    I tried my best to find out where I am wrong but I couldn't find.
    Should I continue or have to redo it pls let me know. Thanks a lot.
    By the way I love your patterns a lot.
    YK.

  13. Hi, I asked you a question in the above txt but didn't receive any answer.
    In spite of getting 125 stitches the pattern came out quite well . Was it a misprint in number because it said 112 stitches & I had 125 stitches.
    Anyway I finished it & it came out very well. Now I am knitting the hood.
    Want to ask U .... After 34 Row we have to repeat last 2 rows 14 times more.
    Here u wrote ...
    It's easy to adjust length here. So I have increased it.
    Now I want to know if I have increased cape length am I suppose to increase hood length too?
    After repeating 1 & 2 row 16 times more now can I increase hood length here? Pls pls reply soon. Thanks a lot in advance.
    YK.
