Chic Little Cape

This post may contain affiliate links. If you purchase something from one of these links I will be compensated. Thank you.

This adorable cape was designed by my daughter, Vada. When she saw the Chic Sheep yarn, she came up with the idea for this cape. She explained to me what she wanted it to look like and I created it for her. She loves the finished cape, and I’m sure you will too.

  1. This pattern looks great …. I enjoy crocheting capes/shawls for the home bound women in our community and was wondering if you could give suggestions on how to make this pattern for an adult woman. Thanks EB

  2. I am making shoulder wraps for the elderly in our community, many in wheelchairs or on walkers. I have been told they must not have large “holes” as the senior (some of them) get their fingers hung up in them and then they get destressed. I understand that, I do the same as I too am elderly. Anyway, I digress. What I want to ask you is if someone has enlarged this for adults and if so, do you know how I can locate that pattern? This is a beautiful little cape and I feel it would make what I am looking for for the seniors who need them. I am not experienced enough to figure out how to make it bigger.
