I'm looking for some similar patterns to that wrap ^^  I plan on making up my own pattern... but I want to see others to help base mine on.  For the last few days I've been looking online... but can't seem to find anything.  Do you have any helpful links?  Please share...

Wow!!  That is one of the most amazing things I've ever seen!!  I love how it lays, the flower, the little caplet, everything!!!  I opened the window and just stared at if for a while partly trying to figure out how to replicate it, partyly because I was stunned by its sheer beauty.

Sorry, but I'm still in shock to try to formulate some type of pattern.  Let me know if you come up with something or find another similiar pattern.  G-o-r-g-e-o-u-s!!

What about this one? It's similar even with the arms. The pattern is for sale but it's only $5 so may be well worth it.

vogue knits for fall magazine has a similar one i think (knitted, but maybe you can use the measurements and collar idea).
as far as i can see in the picture, the anthropologie one is a long half oval in double or triple crochet with 3 or 4 rows of border all around added creating the edging and the collar.  i assume the rose could be made of a long strip rolled like making a fabric or ribbon rose. 
you could cut a piece of fabric and keep trying until you get the shape you want... then create a gauge swatch with your chosen yarn and make your own pattern to match the fabric shape.  with double crochet, this would be a quick piece so it might be worth experimenting. 
hmm i want to make one too! but i have to finish some other stuff first so...

Wow, I am currently attempting to make this myself. I covet 90% of the clothes I see in Anthropologie, but like everyone else I always think, I could make that myself......
 
I used the following pattern as a starting point:

http://www.interweave.com/knit/interweave_knits/pdf_files/RoundtheCapelet.pdf

Instead of joining the chain, I just turn the work at the end. It will be necessary to add increases after about 12", otherwise the cape will only cover your backside (I speak from experience and unfortunate 2am frogging). When the body is done, I will add the ruffle by doing 2 or 3 triple crochet in each stitch space around the sides and bottom. I'll use a crocheted loop and antique button to fasten about the neck. Not sure about how to shape the collar, will have to think that out. There's a zillion flower patterns out there, so I don't think that will be a problem.

I'm using a K hook and Patons Divine in Richest Rose, a beautiful fuzzy magenta 18% mohair/79% acrylic blend. It's about $5 for a 100g skein, but I got it on sale at Michael's for $3.69 about two weeks ago.

PS If anyone out there has ideas on customizing cardigans a la Anthropologie, I'd love to hear it.

Don't you love how they always put "hand crocheted" on things?

Crocheting has yet to be mechanized....

well, that link doesn't work for me anymore, but i think i know the cape you are talking about, because i tried to make it about a year ago (whenever i saw it in the catalog).  unfortunately, i didn't know much about knittiing then, and it turned out a mess, but yesterday i decided to try again. 

i found this pattern:  http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/khs-cape.html

and so now i'm ripping my old cape and starting over.  i'll post pictures if it works out.
