Rainbow Hero Cape

The Rainbow Hero Cape will make any little girl feel super! My daughter, Kyla, named this one because it makes her feel like a superhero. The pattern is easy to memorize, so once you have a few rows done, you can just pick it up any time and get crocheting without having to follow along with the pattern. You can make it as long or short as you want, but with the 3 skeins of Think Bamboo yarn you will get a 13″ long cape. Then just add a few buttons and you’re good to go!

    • Sure, just chain enough to start with row 2 or 3, and then start with row 2 or 3 instead of row 1, that will make the neck larger. Then you just continue the pattern as long as you need it!

  1. Thank you for this free pattern, much appreciated, I can see this as a go to pattern as one gets tired of the old poncho.
