A while back I created the Hoodie Cowl, and ever since I have been wanting to create a hooded cape based on it. I finally have, and it’s everything I hoped it would be! The hood still has the cable running up the back, and the cape features 3 cables, one on the back, and one on each of the front edges. The cape can be completed with 3 skeins of Lion Brand Scarfie.

Finishing:
Weave in all ends.
Cut 12″ of yarn, thread it through the yarn needle and sew through the edge of all the rows of the hood section, gathering up the sl sts. Sew again 1/2″ in from edge through all sl sts. This will gather the sl st sections to just under 2″, which will finish the shaping of the hood.

  1. I just need to clarify that I’m reading it correctly: this is crocheted in one whole piece, and not hood then shawl then sew together, right? Because I have been looking for a single-piece pattern for a hooded shawl for a long time. Thank you!

  2. Wow Jessie you have out done your self this time! I love this hooded cabled cape! I have made a few of your patterns and they have all come out perfect.. I know this one will as well.
    Thank you so much for sharing your talent.

  3. Thanks to you, I now have a pattern for a crocheted cape with hood! that Ive been looking for forever! And if it turns out fairly well,I would love to send you something for it.

    • Thank you! But I do get paid for the ads on the blog, as long as people come to my blog. So by reading my blog, you are paying me!

  4. This is gorgeous! It is so hard for me to find patterns that I like. I lowly have looked through hundreds of patterns and this is one of a few that are my style. Thank you so much for taking the time to create this pattern and offer it for free. I know it is extremely time consuming. So, again, many thanks. I can’t wait to get started on this!

  5. Hi Jessie, Thank you for the pattern. I completed the hood and began the cape section. I am not sure that the stitch count/cable parts are lining up. In Row 1 of the cape, do you start the chain 3 and 12 subsequent DC at the first slip stitch of row 9 of the hood section?

      • This is the point I’m at right now and I’m having the same problem. I even went back and double counted all the stitches just to make sure I didn’t miss one somewhere, but everything is where it should be. First row of the cape I have an extra stitch (dc from last row 9 of hood) after the dc3tog and before the 1st bptr of the cable section. It appears the other side of row after the cable section will end up with an extra (unworked) stitch as well. 🙁

        • You’re right. The hood ends with 90 sts, but the first row of the cape only worked into 88 sts, I fixed it so it works into 90 sts now.

  6. Love your pattern,I have completed the cape and hood,unfortunately would like more length,do you have any reccomendationsà?

      • I have finished the cape,but am having trouble finishing the hood and cape is there an easier way to explain it,as I am a novice and it just doesn’t make sense.thanks

        • I’m out of town for most of the summer. Try asking in my facebook group or other crochet groups for explanation on what you don’t understand. This is an intermediate pattern, so you will probably have a few questions.

  7. On the good, when u repeat rows 2 thru 9 twice, are you following instructions for row 2 then 3 then 4 , etc? Or just repeating directions for row 9, 18x ?
