HandMade: The Crochet Red Hooded Cape.

The Crochet Red Hooded Cape, entirely whimsical, fantasy driven project that was heavily inspired by all of those things. Must say, I feel like a hobbit in this cape and if you know me, that is an insanely beautiful thing! I knew I wanted to make this cape, as soon as I finished this one. I pushed it off until I could find the right color of red and this shade fits the theme quite suitably. I feel as if I would like to create a longer piece, same exact method, but that will depend on just how cold it actually gets here this Winter!

The crochet technique I used, for the cape was a half double crochet and double crochet and a bit of open spacing once again to allow a bit of not so heavy feel. For the hood as well as the bow, I applied the same technique to continue the consistency throughout the project. For the trim, I made an almost picot-esque edging to apply the whimsy feel to the piece.

The Yarn I used: Country Rose// Caron One Pound
The Hook I used: J/10-6.00MM   
The Pattern I used: Experimental: My Own!
