That looks so comfy and warm, but leaves the arms free for knitting! PERFECT! Thanks for sharing!!

I need HELP with the "shape shoulders instructions". I don't understand if I have to cast off 8 sts per rows for 8 rows or else... I also cast off 7 sts in the next 2 rows (4 in the first and 3 in the second). So do I cast off 7 sts on each row to be left with 33 sts at the end because right now, I don't have 33 sts left. I would really appreciate your help in this beautiful cape.

Thank you, Jojos ;)

You should cast off 8 stitches at the BEGINNING of each of the first 8 rows. This will remove a total of 64 stitches, leaving 47 stitches on the needle.

Then you cast off 7 stitches at the beginning of each of the next two rows. This will take off 14 more stitches, so you'll have 33 stitches left over.
