Doll capelet

This is more of a tutorial than actual pattern. ..

Row 1: Ch an even number, sc in each ch (odd number of sc)

Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as first dc), * skip one, V-stitch in next sc, repeat from*  to the end, dc in last stitch

Row 3: ch3, all the way across put 1 dc in each dc and 2 dc in ch 1 space of v-stitches, ending with 1 dc in turning ch

Repeat rows 2 and 3 until it is large enough to drape over the shoulders, ending with row 2. Each row may not work out perfectly evenly, but that's why this isn't a real pattern as much as tutorial style.

Row (5): ch 3, 3dc in ch space of v-stitch all the way across, dc in turning ch

Row (6): ch 3, v-stitch in middle dc across, dc in turning ch

Repeat last 2 rows until it's the length you want (I ended with row 5)

Cut yarn. Time for the hood!

Row 1: dc in 1 st st, 2 dc in next- across
Row 2: 1 dc in next 2 dc, 2 dc in next- across
Repeat that increase pattern until it's large enough to fit around the dolls head, then dc in each dc for the height of the head.
Fold in half and sew together,

Sc around the entire thing to give it a smoother look.

Add ch stitching on both sides of the next to tie it on.

These are different ideas. Maybe your doll of choice can have a new hooded capelet for the winter.

Here is my finished version. I used two colors because I didn't have enough of the red, lol.

Wow, been a while...

Ok, so soon after my last post I found out I was pregnant and life has been crazy ever since.
To sum up the almost two and a half years, I am now a stay at home mom to a lovely two year old girl. I've lost three babies in the womb but God is still good. Scratch that, God is great!

I'm still into my own crochet patterns/improvises but not practiced at writing them out.

I've also gotten into DIY homemaking and exercising so you may see some of those adventures here.

Can't promise to update daily, but now that I've recovered my password I can update! Yay!

Stay tuned (I say to, like, one official follower who may not even see this blog anymore.)
If you stumbled across this blog,  come back and see if you like what will be coming.

God bless!
