Yes, it's definitely big and poofy looking, which I think is kind of cool if you're the kind of person who can pull off the voluptuous shoulder wrap thing (not sure I can or not, we'll see). I've also thought about extending the sleeves to full length and adding ribbing. I love how the sleeves start out as a pentagon and then taper into 2x2 rib -- that would be neat, to add a 3rd row of half-pentagons that extend into ribbing. If my attention span holds out, I'm hoping to try that.

I'm on the collar!  Grin Grin Grin

However, since I am currently enlarging due to the growth of my beloved fetus, something cute and short might be interesting... if it doesn't just look entirely ridiculous. 

I think it would look really cute as a maternity thing. You're supposed to have the big belly, and it's baby, not fat. Nothing wrong with that. ...if the thing would fit in the shoulders, which I guess is what we'll find out when the fast knitters get it done.

I'm about to start on the sleeves but I have a quick question, when it says work through row 20 then work even for 16 rows does it mean continue in the pentagon pattern without any decreases?

laura, i am at the exact same place, with the exact same question...anyone out there at or past the sleeves who can help?

i'm inclined to think "work even" means no decreases for the 16 rows and then working a decrease row after that as follows for whatever size you're making.

i just talked to my friend who is almost done with her capecho. she said that the "work even" means you just follow the pattern for 16 rows, making cables as indicated, but not making any of the decreases. hope that makes sense.

Hi everybody! Thought I'd let everyone know that my dk weight capecho seems to be coming out nicely so far! I went on a business trip and didn't want to take the whole thing, so I finished the collar on the plane rides. Now all I really need to do is go back and finish the sleeves. It seems to be just right across in terms of the width/bust dimension- but it might be a bit short when I'm done.

Finished!



I think the construction of it is really neat and ingenious. As for the fit... bleh.

I have no idea what to do with it. There's no way I can wear it. Oh well.
