1) Knit 20 rows in Claret.
Add Fringe to ends: 4 10” strands of yarn per fringe. Make 6 claret and 5 gold, placing the claret on the outer edges and one in the very middle and evenly spacing the rest of the claret and the gold in between.

The robe in this pattern is the correct basic shape, though a few modifications were needed. The body needed more fullness and less length. The sleeves were way too pointy and the hood not pointy enough. I found some very good drawings of the final shape of the hood and sleeves here. I used a black peach skinish material which hangs nicely and has a great feel. The robe is fully lined and has a wand pocket hidden inside.
K went to a book release party with a friend of hers and they were the cutest things. While waiting in line to get into the party, I watched a reporter from a local station scanning the line. He stopped dead when he saw K and her friend. They charmed the mic right out of his hand and were featured on the news that night and the next day. They had so much fun!
