Granny-Square Cape

The front

This is a cape I have crocheted for my four years-old niece. It is completely made with the granny-square stitch, except for a border of double crochets. I started at the tip and increased at the beginning and end of each new row, to form a big triangle. I folded a part of the longest side to form a collar and attached it into place with flowers, following my Eight-Petal Crochet Flowers pattern.  I used a polyester yarn.

I love making things for little girls. Girly things in pink, with flowers and the like. Do you?

  1. Oh my gosh – that’s so delicate and so pretty France! Love the colors and the little flowers! Yes, little girls are fun to make things for. Even our little tomboys would have loved this!
