Pattern Inspiration

For this crochet cape pattern I was invited to be a part of the Battle of the Stitches. It is a designing competition where you are given a specific stitch to use and then you have to design something. You are then judged on your design and a winner is chosen.

For this round, we were given the tri-square stitch. It is similar to the basket weave stitch, but smaller in size.

I came up with this beautiful crochet cape for my design!

Pattern Details

This vintage style crochet cape pattern calls for worsted weight (#4) yarn. I used Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn for my sample.

Another great yarn option would be Lion Brand Yarn Pound of Love. Both are really nice, soft and sturdy worsted weight yarns.

This crochet cape pattern comes in 8 sizes total- 4 in adult sizes and 4 in children’s sizes.

The pattern is rated Intermediate in pattern difficulty.

  1. Lovely pattern! Also, I have to say, I highly approve of the horse in the picture 🙂 I’ve been trying to get my barn friends to learn to crochet with me but I haven’t been having any luck. Thank you again for a great pattern!
