We listened to your feedback and are happy to introduce the new Cosmo Simplified instruction. Please download this new instruction from our Free Patterns section of the website. Cosmo Simplified now replaces the former instruction, Cosmo Chunky Jacket.

On the next round, k2tog 5 times, end k1.

July 28, 2010 We corrected the free pattern version currently posted, however, if you downloaded it previously, please see notes below:
Rows 2, 4 & 6 should be as follows - p3, (k2, p6, k2, p2) 4 times, then k2, p6, k2, p3
The corrections is under the Right Front: Shape neckline
At neck edge, BO 1 st at neck edge every row until 19(21, 23, 25)
shoulder sts remain.
Cast on 200 (215, 225, 240) sts. Then follow circle border pattern 3 times = 24 rows. On last row, inc 2 (1, 3, 2) sts evenly across.
First release of this pattern print was missing needle size (see below)
13 hanks of Misti 100% Baby Alpaca Chunky (100 grams/109 yards)
Size: 48" x 66"
Knitting needles: Size #10 (29" or 36" circular needles)
Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.
Notes from test Knitter.... It helps to place markers between the seed stitch borders and the body of the afghan; also place markers between each of the motifs (every 28 stitches).
On the breakout rows (37, 41, 45, 49, 53) remember that the markers have to be placed after the 28th stitch.
Stitch 28 will be joined with stitch 1 of the next motif.
After the first stitch of the twist stitch has been worked, place the marker.
(The marker will be between the two stitches that make up the twist.)
It also helps to have some kind of tool to help keep your place (such as a magnetic board).
Starting with Row 37 slip (knit-wise) the first stitch of the motif and follow the pattern as shown on the chart.
The trick is to do nothing with the first stitch of each motif except to slip it.
When you come back on the wrong side, everything should fall into place.

Just a note to knitters (not a correction but rather some options depending upon how you knit) The main body on the original photographed Victorian Capelet was knit using a size 15 needle. However, the piece was only lightly blocked (Spritzed, laid flat to dry). If you plan on wet blocking the piece, it is advisable to knit a swatch of the cable and lace panel on smaller needles (10's, 11’s and/or 13’s). Wet block your swatch and check your results to see what suits you best.
All my best, Karen
