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.
