This adorable cape was designed by my daughter, Vada. When she saw the Chic Sheep yarn, she came up with the idea for this cape. She explained to me what she wanted it to look like and I created it for her. She loves the finished cape, and I’m sure you will too.

  1. This pattern looks great …. I enjoy crocheting capes/shawls for the home bound women in our community and was wondering if you could give suggestions on how to make this pattern for an adult woman. Thanks EB
