Rainbow Hero Cape free crochet pattern by Jessie At Home

Rainbow Hero Cape
Crochet Pattern
Easy Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

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 (CLICK HERE for the 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!
