Someeone was asking for a simple pattern.'
I'm making one right now. It is an old pattern I'll try and post a photo later.
Ch 41 (I'm starting with more chains this time)
Row 1 DC in 4th ch from hook, dc in next st. 1 dc, ch 1, 1dc in the next stitch ,*dc in next three stitches . (1dc, ch 1, dc )) in the next stitch. repeat from * across the row. End with dc in each of last 3 stitches.
Row 2 thru 14 Ch 3 turn Dc in each st, working (dc, ch1, dc)in each ch one space of row below In other words DC in eqch stitsh until you get to thee ch from the previous row and then do that little pattern then DC etc.
Edging Ch 1 turn sc in first stitch ) ch1 skip on stitch, sc in next stitch. Repeat from * around entire cape. Join with slip stitch in begining stitch
Tie Ch a length and atttach to neck for each side
hope the directions are clear.
It is fast and no counting
