Make your own fairy tale come true with this beautiful riding cape, complete with romantic cabled edge and generous hood.
The width of the neck is 73 cm / 29 inches, so it works well for anyone from a child to an adult.
This pattern uses traditional crochet techniques (as opposed to Tunisian crochet) and was designed to be made with a regular, short crochet hook.
Yarn used in sample:
Tivoli Blockbuster Aran
(Wool & Acrylic – 8 wpi)
“Scarlet” – 3 balls (1850 m)
Neck circumference: 73 cm / 29 inches
Nape of neck to lowest part of cape back: 86 cm / 34 in
Hook: 6 mm (J Hook)
Ruadh (which means “Red” in Irish) is created by starting with the crochet cable band.
The body is made using a light and airy crochet moss stitch, has a gently curved hem and is worked side to side. The hood is then
completed and a little sewing secures the cable band in place.
