hi everybody this is Crystal so today I’m
going to show you how to make this Cape here okay
please excuse my mess in the background im redoing my Freddy wall
so I got to paint it and stuff so we’ll start off it’s got these clasps right
here now these are called Cape Cape clasps these can be purchased on Amazon
that’s where I got mine I will leave a link to these in the description box
it’s not an affiliated link I don’t get money if you buy them just in case
you’re interested you don’t have to use these I mean I think I mentioned in the
video that you could use a weaver yarn chain through put some tassels on it you
know underneath the hood some beads that would be pretty one button three buttons
anything like that but this is what it looks like I also think I mentioned a
couple times in the video and I am 5 foot 3 in case you wanted to know my
height it does you seen in the pictures how far it goes down on me once you put
it down on it does stretch a bit the weight of it stretches a bit but this is
what it looks like it does have the hood sorry about them tails that I have
not hidden yet but this is what she looks like what do you guys think now as
it stands I think that it would fit size medium to probably 2 X okay that’s
that’s my guess oh I’ll give you some measurements though now if you want to
make it bigger I would suggest using a bigger hook or you could even use a
bigger weight yarn like this this calls for a four-way you could use like a
bulky 5 and a bigger hook and that would probably jump it up to like a 3x
you know just it’s pretty forgiving as far as size goes you can make it
as long or short as you want now the stitches that you need to know
besides the basics double and single you’re gonna need to know how to do
front post double crochet back post double crochet and bobble I consider
this an advanced beginner pattern don’t be intimidated you got this you didn’t
do it okay now I’m going to show you how to do it right now let’s get started on
okay measurement wise starting at Row one not counting the hood all the way
down is 39 inches but you must remember when you put it on it does stretch so
you’ve seen the way that it looked on me I am 5 foot 3 so you are more than
welcome to make it longer or shorter than you want but once you get it on the
weight of the cape will stretch out a bit so this piece is folded in half
right now so from here to here fold it in half it’s 33 inches so at its widest
point it’s about 66 inches across because it
does start to gather up right here I put in some extra increases to make it
gather so I hope that helps you with the sizing standpoint okay I chose not to
put slits for armholes in mind because I didn’t want that in mind I didn’t want
that look now if you want to put slits in it it would be extremely easy to do
just whenever you decided where the link that you wanted to put your arm hole you
would just put a chain there instead of doing the shells for that row and then
the next row you would just start your shells again so it would be really easy
to put the slits but for me I didn’t want those in this particular pattern
but you can put them if you like okay for this project I used yarn bee
warm and cozy now this comes from Hobby Lobby it is a medium weight number 4 it
is a lightweight number four it’s an acrylic
and nylon polyester blend you don’t have to use this yarn any medium four weight
yarn or work or as I suggested if you want to make it in a bigger size a bulky
five would work awesome for that too the color that I’d show us here is
mustard now there’s 317 yards per skein and I went through almost eight of them
so it does take a bit of yarn to finish this but like I said this is a lighter
weight four so if you get one that’s a little thicker before weight you may not
take quite as much but you’re gonna need about twenty three hundred yards and
that’s to make it the size that you see me wearing in the picture of course if
you want to make it shorter you won’t need that much if you want to make it if
you’re taller than me and you want to make it go down and all the way to the
floor you’re gonna need a lot more but my size you’re gonna need about twenty
three hundred yards and then I’m going to be using a size I which is a five and
a half millimeter crochet hook you might see me in the video using another color
switching off and on is because I kept losing my hooks but I used an i the
entire time okay you want to start off with a chain of 72 and once you get your
chain of seventy-two done we are going to put a double crochet in the fourth
stitch from the hook now remember we never count the one that’s on our hook
so one two three four in the fourth stitch go ahead and double crochet and
now I’m going to work one double crochet in every stitch for the length of the
chain just like that so continue working one
double crochet in every stitch until you get to the end of Row one alright I have
made it to the end of Row 1 and you should have a total of 70 stitches now
and that includes this chain here on the end you count him as a stitch so counting him you
will have a total of 72 so for Row 2 we are going to chain 1 and turn
our work and that chain 1 does not count as a stitch so we want to do a double
crochet into the first four stitches so the first one goes right here in this
very first stitch so go ahead and double crochet into that so we need four double
crochets in the row so there’s one two three and four so we got four double
crochets in a row now the next stitch we are going to put two double crochets
into the same stitch and that is our increased stitch putting two doubles
into the same stitch now we’re going to repeat that pattern we’re going to put
one double crochet into the next four stitches so there’s one two three and
four and then the next stitch we’ll put two double crochets into the same stitch
that will be our increase so that’s the pattern we’re gonna repeat now for Row
two one double crochet into the next four stitches and then two double
crochets into the next one double into the next four and then two doubles into
the next all the way until we get to the end of the row alright I’m coming to the
end of row two- now I did four double crochets in a row and you should have
one stitch left and it’ll be that chain there on the end put two double
crochets into that last stitch and now you should have a total of 84
stiches at the end of Row 2 Row 3 we will chain 1 and turn our work okay now we’re
gonna start Row 3 we are going to work 5 double crochets in a row and then we’ll
put our increase into the next so remember we start out our first double
crochet always goes right here into this very very first stitch so we want to do
5 in a row so there’s 1 2 3 4 & 5 and now the next
stitch will have 2 double crochets in the same stitch so that’ll be our
increase and that’s going to be our repeat now for Row 3 1 double crochet
into the next 5 stitches there’s 1 2 3 4 5 and then 2 double crochets into the
next and we are going to repeat this pattern until we get to the end of a row
3 1 double crochet into the next 5 and then 2 doubles into the next 1 double
crochet into the next 5 and then 2 double crochets into the next until we
get to the end of the row alrighty I’m coming to the end of a row 3 and I did 5
double crochets in a row I have one stitch left so you want to put two
double crochets into that last stitch that’ll end row 3 and you should have a
total of 90 98 stitches now okay we’re gonna start row 4 now and chain 1 and
turn our work now we are going to put one double crochet into the first 6
stitches remember the first one always right here in this very first spot so we
want to do six in a row so there’s one two three four five six
and then the next stitch we’ll get two double crochets into the same stitch so
that’ll be our increase and that’s what we’re going to repeat now for Row 4 1
double crochet into the next 6 so there’s 1 2 3 4 5 6 and 2 double
crochets into the next so I’m gonna repeat this pattern 1 double crochet in
the next six and then 2 double crochets are the next all the way until
I get to the end of the row all right I have made it to the end of a row four
your last stitch that had two double crochets in it and now you should have a
total of a hundred and twelve stitches row 5 we are going to chain 1 and turn
our work and now we’re going to put one double crochet into the first seven
stitches and then the next one will put two
double crochets into the same stitch so that will be are increased stitch and that’s
a repeat now for row five one double crochet into the next seven stitches and then two double crochets into the
next now I’m going to repeat that pattern all the way until I get to the
end of the row all right I’ve made it to the end of row
five you should enter with two stitches into your last stitch and now you should
have a total of a hundred and twenty-six stitches for row six we are going to chain
one and turn our work and now we’re gonna put one double crochet into the
first eight stitches seven and eight and then the next stitch
we’ll get two double crochets into the same stitch so that’ll be the increase
and that is a repeat now for row six one double crochet into the next eight
stitches seven and eight and then the next one it
will be two doubles into the same stitch so I’m going to repeat that pattern one
double crochet in the next eight and then two double crochets into the next
all the way down until I get to the end of my row
all right I have made it to the end of round six and I ended it with two double
crochets in my last stitch and you should have a total of 140 stitches now
now I will start round seven by chaining one and oop lets try that again chain one
and turn our work I bet you can probably guess what we’re gonna do now we’re
gonna put one double crochet into the first nine stitches now there’s nine and now we’re going to put
two double crochets into the next so that is the repeat now for row seven one
double crochet into the next nine and then two double crochets into the next
all the way until you get to the end of the row
all righty I’ve made it to the end of row seven I have ended in two double
crochet and I have a total of 154 stitches so I’m going to start row eight
by chaining one and turn now we’re going to put one double crochet into the first
ten stitches there’s Ten and in the next one we’re
going to put two double crochets into the same stitch so that is the repeat
per row eight one double crochet into the next ten and then two doubles into
the next one double on to the next ten and two into the next and we’re going to
repeat that until we get to the end of the row all right I have made it to the
end of row eight I believe I lose track row eight and you now used to have a
total of 168 stitches so for row nine we are going to chain one and turn our work
now we are going to not increase now we are going to work across and
we’re going to put one double crochet in every single stitch until we get to our
last stitch so one double in every stitch across here this is for row nine
no increasing here until we get to our last stitch and I will meet you at the
last stitch just like that
all right I am coming to the end of row nine now we just did one double
crochet in every single stitch and I am at my last stitch I want to put two
double crochets in my last stitch so that is the only stitch that I put two
double crochets in on this round the last stitch gets two doubles and that’ll
end row 9 and you will have a hundred and sixty-nine stitches so now we’re going
to stitch row 10 is the bobble stitch row so we are going to chain one
and turn our work okay now we’re gonna start off by putting one single crochet
into the first two stitches so right there in your very first one there’s one
and we’re going to put a single crochet into the next stitch so that’s two in
the next stitch we’re going to put a bobble so this is how we do the bobble
where you’re going to yarn over go into the next stitch and draw up a loop and
yarn over and go through the first two loops on our hook we want to do that
five times total so that was number one again yarn over go into the same stitch
draw up a loop yarn over and go through the first two that’s two times again yarn
over go into the same stitch draw up a loop yarn over go through the first two loops that’s three times again yarn over go
into the same stitch draw up a loop yarn over go through the first two that’s
four times one more time yarn over go into the same stitch draw up a loop yarn
over go through the first two you’ll have one two three four five six
loops that remain we want to yarn over and go through all six loops give it a
tug and then we’re going to directly single crochet into the next three
stitches so go right into the next one and we’re going to put one single
crochet the next one two single crochets and the next one after that will be our
three single crochets so there was three single crochets in a row we just did
after that bobble and there’s the bobble on the other side so we are going to
repeat this from the bobble so we’re going to do a bobble into the next
stitch so we’re going to yarn over go into the next stitch draw up a loop yarn
over and go through the first two loops we want to repeat that five times we
want to have five times total so that was number one again yarn over go in the
same stitch draw up a loop yarn over go yarn over go into the same stitch through the first two that’s two times
again three times that’s four times and that’s five times
six loops remain yarn over go through all six loops give it a nice tight tug
and then we’re going to put one single crochet into the next three stitches so
there is one two and three and there you look and you got your second bobble
there on the other side so we are going to repeat this again so we’re going to
bobble again into the next stitch so we’re going to yarn over go into the
next stitch draw up a loop yarn over go through the first two you want to do
that five times total so that was one two three there’s four there’s five six loops
remain on your hook yarn over go through all six give it a good tug and then one
single crochet into the next three stitches there’s one two and three and
that’s what we’re going to repeat all the way until we get to the end of row
ten again I’ll show you one more time bobble into the next six loops on your hook yarn over and go through all six
tight you want a single crochet in the next three stitches one two and three
and then we would start again with the bobble and then one single crochet in
the next three bobble one single crochet in the next three until we get to the
end and when you flip it over to the right side that is where our bobbles are
showing all right I have made it to the end of a row ten I just did my last
bobble and I have two stitches left I’m going to put one single crochet in each
of the last two stitches that went around wrote in and you’ll still have a
hundred and sixty nine stitches counting the bobbles and the single crochets so
now we’re going to start round eleven or row eleven I keep saying round but it’s
row whatever now we’re going to start our
shells so this is going to be the main portion of the cape cloak okay so we’re
going to start off by putting on one double crochet this is on row eleven
that room in the very first stitch now we are going to skip one stitch and in
the next stitch we are going to put a shell a shell consists of five double
crochets all in the same stitch so we’re skipping in this single crochet and in
the next stitch is actually on top of the bobble we are going to work a shell
so right on top of that bobble we will work five double crochets yeah now we are going to skip one stitch
and in the next stitch we will double crochet so skip one double in the next
now we’re going to skip one again so that single crochet right there and
we’re going to shell again which is going to be on top of the bobble so if
you look at the bobble if you flip it kind of upward you’ll see the stitches
that you need to go the top of the stitch right there and you work your
shell 5 double crochets goes right on top of that bobble then we skip one stitch and double into
the next and then we skip one stitch and bop shell into the next which is on top
of the bobble and that is what we’re going to repeat now for row 11 skip one double into the next skip one
and shell into the next which is on top of the bottle so the shell on this row
always goes on top of the bobble stitch skip one double into the next skip one
and shell into the next which is on top of the bobble so I am going to repeat that
pattern now we’ve been doing there it’s it’s shell skip one double into the
next skip one shell into the next which is always on top of the Bobble and then
you skip one then double skip one and shell skip one and double and skip one
in shell so I’m going to do this until I get to the end of row 11 all right I
have made it to the end of row 11 and I just did a shell and I have two stitches
left I’m gonna skip one and double crochet into the last stitch and now you
should have a total of 42 shell stitches at the end around 11 it’s okay if it’s a
little wavy it’s gonna be like that that’s fine now we’re going to start row
12 so row 12 and 13 are the repeat rows for the rest of the cloak so what we’re
going to do is chain 1 and turn our work so since it’s wavy it’ll get a little
bit wider as the more rows you put on it’ll get a little bit wider so okay so
for row 12 we are going to we chain 1 in turn we’re gonna double crochet right
back into that same first stitch we always double crochet in the first
stitch and now we are going to find the middle stitch of the first shell so you
actually skip two stitches skip skip and the next one will be the middle stitch
go ahead and shell into that middle stitch so 5 double crochets into that
middle stitch and now we’re gonna skip the next two
stitches of the shell we’re gonna be working in this double crochet right
here we are gonna work a back post double crochet so we’re gonna yarn over
and we’re gonna go from behind around the post and we’re gonna work a back
post double crochet like that cuz this on the other side is the front side of
our work where the bobbles are and we want our posts to line up so we have to
work back post right now because we’re working on the backside of our work so
now what we’re gonna do is jump to the next Shell and in the middle stitch of
it we’re gonna put a shell so we’ll skip two stitches skip skip and the next one
would be the middle stitch so we’re gonna put a shell into that middle
stitch so to be five double crochets and then we’re gonna skip the two
stitches again of the shell and then we’re gonna be working in the stubble
and we’re gonna put a back post double crochet around this double crochet right
here just like that and this is what we’re gonna repeat for the whole row row
12 so we skip two stitches skip skip and we’ll be in the middle stitch of the
shell and we go ahead and work five double crochets and then when you skipped two again skip
skip you’ll be at this double crochet here back post double crochet around
that double crochet and then we repeat you skip two and you’ll be in the middle
of the shell so you shell unto that stitch and then when you skip two again skip
skip you’ll be at this single this double crochet here if it’s a by itself
back post double crochet around that and that’s what I’m going to repeat all the
way to the end of the row and this is what it starts to look like from the
front you can see the post it just starts to stand out they’ll stand out
more once we get more rounds or more rows going but I’m just going to repeat
this pattern until I get to the end of the row I’ll skip two and I’ll be in the
middle of the shell so I’ll shell into that stitch and when you skip to again you’ll be at
this double crochet here back post double crochet around him just like that
and repeat so I’m gonna go ahead and finish out row 12 alright I have made it
to the end of row 12 I did my shell there in that middle the last shell I’m
gonna skip to and there’ll be one stitch left just go into a regular double
crochet into the top of your last stitch now in row 12 and you still have 42
shells the row 13 we are gonna chain one and turn our work now it’s very similar
to row 12 except for one difference we’re gonna start off by putting a
double crochet into the very first stitch always put a double crochet into
the very first stitch and then we will shell into the middle of the first shell
so if you skip two the next stitch will be the middle stitch of the shell so I’m
going to put a shell in that one and now we’re gonna skip two and then
we’re gonna be at these this double crochet here this post stitch instead of
putting a back post double crochet in it since we’re working on the front side of
our work now we’re going to do a front post double crochet so go right around
the post of it from the front and do a front post double crochet so that is the
only difference now instead of we’re doing everything the same but instead of
doing back post this time we’re doing front post so again we’ll skip two and
then we’ll be in the middle of our shell and then we shell right into the middle
of it and then we’ll skip two again and then
we’re going to front post double crochet around the next skip two and you’ll be
in the middle of the shell shell into that stitch skip two and front post double around the
next so this is what we’re going to repeat this time around every time we’re
on the front of our work we always work front post double crochets but whenever
we’re on the back of our work we always do the back post double crochets so I’m
going to continue repeating this pattern until I get to the end of row 13 okay when you come to the end of round
13 please don’t mind the color of the hook change it’s still the same size I
just for some reason lost the hook I was just using okay once you come to the end
around 13 you want to skip two stitches and then you’ll end by putting a double
crochet into your last stitch 42 shells still and that’s the repeat now you
want to repeat rounds 12 and 13 and you can repeat those rounds until you get
your shawl oh you I’m sorry your cape as long as
you want it to be maybe you want a short one maybe you want one that drags the
floor that is completely up to you but for me I did after you get to the end
you can go ahead and tie off but for me I did a total of 70 rows and that is
starting from the very very first row up here row one at the top row 1 all the
way down I did a total of 70 remember you do it as big as you want and then
you just tie off now I’m gonna put a hood on it so go ahead and get your
piece let’s lay it out here it’s kind of big so laid out here how we want it so
we can work with it let’s see okay so here’s the right side of my work right
here you can see the bobbles I’m gonna start right here on this side of the
collar see the Collar areas right here we’re just going to be working back and
forth on the collar area to form our hood so you want to go ahead and get
your yarn ready okay I’m gonna start in to remember
here’s the right side cuz you see our bobbles are right here I’m gonna start
in the very first stitch right here this very first stitch and I am going to pull
my yarn through I’m going to chain one now I’m going to work a double crochet
right back into that very same stitch that I just started in and now I’m going
to work across and I’m going to put one double crochet in every stitch across
the collar area here across the top it’s like that so what I’m gonna do is
continue putting one double crochet in every stitch until I get right over here
to the other side of my cape and I’ll meet you right over here all right I
have made it to the other side here and you should have a total of 70
stitches because that’s where we ended with on the very first row if you don’t
you know you have like a 69 or 71 it’s no big deal it’s not gonna make it
different so don’t pull it out if it’s not it’s not right I’ll be honest with
you I only got 69 right now but I’m I’m not gonna pull it out because it’s okay
it’s okay so what I’m gonna do now is chain one
and turn my work and now what I’m going to do is just keep repeating that
working rows of double crochet back and forth across the top of our collar and
that’s going to build up the hood so I’m gonna start I chained one in turn always
put your double crochet right there in that very first stitch and then I’m
gonna put one double crochet in every stitch until I get back around to
the other side so the hood is this going to consist of rows of double crochet
back and forth 70 stitches at the end of every row until we get some
height on it and then we’ll see them up the top so right now I’m on Row 2 of the
hood putting one double crochet in every stitch all the way across until we get back
right over here to where we started all right once you make it back around to
the end of Row 2 you still should have your 70 stitches in my case I only got
69 oops so we won’t tell anybody what we’re
going to do is we’re just gonna keep repeating that so we’re gonna chain 1
and turn our work and we’re gonna work across again putting 1 double crochet in
every stitch starting in that very first stitch so I’m just going to keep doing
rounds of 1 double crochet in every stitch and so this hood gets some
heights on it now remember it’s not going to look like a hood until we seam
it up at the top but we need to get quite a bit of heights before we do that
so I’m just going to keep doing rows of 1 double crochet in every stitch now I’m
not quite sure how many I’m gonna do but I’m gonna keep working at it and I’ll
let you know here in just a little bit how many total rows I do so we’re on a
row 3 now of the hood all righty now on my hood I have done a
total of 23 rows on bigger you can make it taller you know until we’re going to
be big a lot bigger and baggier here around your face
then what you see mine is that’s up to you but I did it all from starting from
the first row of the hood up it’s 23 i did not tie off now we’re gonna do is
slip stitch it together so here’s the right side of my work you can see the
bobbles right here I want to fold the top in half like this so we’re the right
sides facing up here and then when we slip stitch it together we’ll flip it
right side out and the seam will be on the inside of the work so one more time
here’s the right side of our work you can see bobbles are facing up here’s the
hood fold it together like this okay and now we’re gonna substitute so I didn’t
tie off just go start where I ended there I got my hood folded in half and
I’m gonna slip stitch the top together so I’m gonna start mmm my hooks or my
yarns over here on the other side and that’s fine what I’m gonna do is go in
to stitch on the other side and then back into the stitch first stitch over
here and slip stitch and now I’m going to do that all the way across
you go into the next stitch here on this side and the next stitch on the other
side and slip stitch can this stitch and then the next stitch on the other side
just matching up the stitches and then slip stitching so I’m just substituting
my hood at the top across together and I’m doing it on the wrong side
so when we flip it inside out the seam will be on the inside I’m gonna do this all way down slip
stitch my hood up so I get to the end of the hood and it’s all slip stitched up like that you see how we we’re slip
stitching it together and then when we’re done we will flip it and this will
be the right side and then our seam will be nice and neat so we will continue
slip stitching all the way across here till you get to the end here all right
I’ve made it all the way across and I slip stitched it all together now I’m gonna tie
off I’m gonna hide my quick here before I flip it inside out so I’m just gonna
take this and kind of weave in my tail I dont usually show myself hiding my tails back the other way now well you get to picture just hide it
your tail here and then what we will do is take our hood and put it inside out
or right side out there we go that’s a nice clean seam right there don’t get
much cleaner than that does it looks good I like it so there’s that so now we
got are right side of our work facing yes let’s do we’re almost done
let’s clean up all these edges now because it’s so long okay let’s see so I
got the right side of my work facing me bobbles are right there what I’m gonna
do is I’m gonna start at the bottom of my work okay and I’m gonna work evenly
spaced out single crochets all the way up this long side and then all the way
up here evenly spacing out all the way around my hood top of my hood around to
the other side of my hood and then I’m gonna go all the way back down evenly
spacing out the other long side all the way down to the bottom so I’m gonna
start over here now when I say evenly spaced out my single crochets the
amount of single crochets you have here doesn’t really doesn’t really matter
it’s just trying to get your single crochet spaced out as evenly as you can
I usually go by two single crochets to every double crochet here that’s kind of
what I always say but you know doesn’t have to be like that but I’m gonna start
right here and to this first double crochet
and I am going to chain one I’m gonna go back in the same spot and single crochet
and like I said I try to put two singles into every double but doesn’t always
happen just through your best to evenly space out your single crochets I kind of
work in between the stitches like this and all this is doing just cleaning up
these edges now this isnt anything like necessary
u have to do I mean I just think it makes it look a little cleaner doing
this so this is what I’m gonna do all the way up and then around the hood and
all the way back down it’s gonna make it look a lot more finished I guess I
should say a nice clean edge on everything I mean gets up a nice
appearance especially if you’re gonna be selling stuff and remember the amount of single
crochets you have here doesn’t it doesn’t matter I’m not even going to
count mine I’m just going to do my best to evenly spaced out my single crochets
and try to put two single crochets on the side of our into each one of these
double crochets here all the way up the side let’s like that
yeah looks a lot neater so I’m gonna continue all the way up to the side all
the way up to side here and I’ll meet you a kind of up here by the bobbles
okay and then we’ll start working up the hood and stuff alright I’d have made it
up here kinda by the bobble room what I’m gonna do is I’m just going to continue
putting evenly spacing out my single crochets trying to work two single
crochets to every double all the way up here and all the way up to my hood seam
and then we’ll just go around the hood seam and continue on the other side
doing the same thing just like this we’re just doing the same
thing cleaning up these edges making them look
nice okay I have went all the way around my
whole piece you can see the hood here I went across the top all the way down
single crocheting its evenly as I can all the way down to the bottom of the
other side so when I get down here if you want to go turn and go back around
again and do some more rows of single crochet that’s fine it’s your cape what
do you know whatever you want it to look like I’m gonna go ahead and finish now
so I’m just gonna end mm by slip stitching here in the top of this last
double crochet but now and now ill have to hide all my tails now I’m going to sew on my clasps here at the top before I
hide my tails at the end so I got the right side of my work facing me just one
second all right sorry I just the color there on my
camera okay so you can see where the hood starts right here and then we have
where we increased and stuff right here this is where we’re gonna hook our our
latches onto now if you don’t have these latches you can just make a like a chain
and weave it through around up by the hood and have a long time
put some tassels at the bottom or some beads on it that will always work you
could use some buttons too like I think it’s like one button here and pull it
over or three buttons down after that’s just some ideas in case you don’t have
these clasps I’m gonna sew my clasps on let’s see here’s my first row of the
hood I’m gonna go on the row in between the first and the second row of our
project not counting the hood so here where are
hood started here’s row one of the project and row two – so
I’m gonna sew one on here and then I’m going to skip one row and I’m going to
sew one on in between the next two there all in individual baggies so I skipped this row
and then in between these two I will put another one and then I will skip one row
again and then skip this row and then in between these last two rows here before
the bobbles is where I’ll put my next one like that and then I’ll match up the
on the other side I’ll do the same so here’s my first row of the hood here’s
I’m gonna go in between the first and the second row of my project and that is
where I’ll tie this on or sew this on and then you can see they’ll clasp together
like that now i’ll go ahead and take them off here so one one normally I would
probably use some type of matching thread probably black but for some
reason I can’t find my black thread this regular sewing thread in a sewing needle
is how I’m going to sew mine on you can use yarn if you want or if you got yarn
thin enough that will through the holes of these or even embroidery thread but I
think I’m just going to use regular thread and I’m gonna sew them on and you
just sew them on like a button kind of let me get my needle right here regular
sewing needle so I went ahead and strung my thread through like I said It’d probably
be better to use a matching thread my black is gone for some reason and it’s
getting eight inches of snow today so I can’t really go
and get any so I’m gonna make do with what I have and you just tie a knot at the end
here I doubled my thread there I pulled it through and doubled it up so go ahead
and put a knot at the end what I do is just kind of roll it in between my
fingers like that put a knot clip off any excess at the bottom if you are good at
sewing you sew it on however you want but remember where we were gonna put them so I have one clasp here and one
clasp here I’m gonna leave the if you’re if you’re working with the clasp
like I am if not remember you can make a long chain I think will look great with
beads on it you weave it through the hood and have it hanging down or tassels
on it a button would look nice but if you’re working with these clasps
remember where we’re gonna sew them on at so here’s the first row over the hood
we’re gonna go in between row actually it’s Row one and two of the very first
row of the project before we put the hood on and if you have these clasps you
want to leave the eye hanging off just a little bit not really much maybe like
that maybe even you know just barely to where a half of your stitch goes through
it and then we’ll sew it on through a hole that every clasp is different this
one has a few holes here but sew it on like this now you need to make sure you
sew these on tight if you’re using these metal clasps because they are a little
bit heavy and we don’t want them to come off yes black would look much better I’m
going to weave up in the back until I get to my next hole I’m not going to tie off and here’s my
next hole right here so Im gonna go through that one just want to make sure you keep it sew it
on straight and tight and then I’m gonna weave over here in
between my stitches to the other side to the next hole which is right here now if
you have a different clasp than me your holes might be in different spots but
wherever they’re at just do your best to get your piece sewed on nice and tight I
do wish I woulda had black thread oh well sometimes we just have to make do with
what we have so I’m going through in each hole two
three times so make sure it’s all nice and tight three times is probably better
you can even do it more if you wanted especially if you had the thread that
matched better okay once you
get it sewed on and then I always just kind of take it in the back and knot
up a couple times those of you that sew I probably laughing
the way I do this but it gets the job done then I kind of just weeve my tails
in or we weave this thread in a few times so I know it’s not going to come
undone just like you’re weaving in a tail now you want to do the same thing to the
other side over here so they clasp together only thing you just have to
make sure is that you keep your rows in the same spot so here’s the first here’s
the row of my hood we don’t count that so here’s the rows one and two we went
in between those over here so we want to do the same thing here
here’s your hook make it to where it barely hangs off like that
sew it on and then they hook together like that so I’m gonna go ahead and sew
on all three of mine all right that’s it once you get your clasps sewed
on or if you decided to use a string that’s fine or buttons that’s fine
that’s it get all your tails hidden and that’s what it looks like I think it
turned out pretty good theres the hood here in the back here I’ll try to go slow
it’s got the bobble detail nice shell detail please excuse my messy room
here’s the hood I like it I do I think that I’m pretty proud of it looks pretty
good I think any color would look awesome in it too so that and I hope you

  1. Wow Crystal.. you really out did yourself with this one. Absolutely gorgeous. I just showed my daughter.. she is 39. She went wow thatโ€™s a really cool item. Looks like I will be making this multiple times over. As a new year resolution… please tell me you are going to wear that. It is stunning on you. Your work is amazing. Such talent in your designs.

  4. This is lovely!!! I can't wait to make this! If you ever feel like it, I would love more videos with vintage style clothing or hats. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. This is BEAUTIFUL…..Iโ€™m without words……….I need to MAKE THIS CAPE. โ€ผ๏ธโ€ผ๏ธโ€ผ๏ธโ€ผ๏ธ thank you Crystal for this beautiful creation….MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU AND YOURS๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ„โ€ผ๏ธ

  6. I'm about 13 minutes in. One thing that confused me is that at the end of row one, I think you said you will have 70 stitches and chains count as one, so you have 72. Don't you have 70 stitches at the end of row one counting those three chains as one dc? Maybe I misunderstood something?

  7. OMG Crystal!!! I've been following you for years and I love ALL your patterns (especially your shawls and ponchos) but this one is one of my favorites!! : ) Thank you so much for sharing!!! What a great present for your followers!!! Happy Holidays and many Blessings to you and your beautiful family!!!

  8. Love it! Just finished watching (including ads, always!) and taking notes. It's very easy!!! Looks complicated but it definitely isn't hard to make. Thank you so much Crystal!!

  9. Beautiful cape and once again outstanding tutorial. I can't wait to make mine after the holidays. Wish I could share photos wit you but your Facebbok Fan page group is gone. At least it is for me because every time I click on TBE link that the link is broken and there is no page which is strange to me because I used to be part of it. Anywho Merry Christmas!

  10. I love that yarn in itโ€™s so pretty! Thank you so much for showing the very first and the very last stitch in each row. I am a relatively new crocheter and this is very helpful to me. I get confused about what is a stitch and what isnโ€™t a stitch otherwise.

  11. Loved your cape and I love your tutorials!!! You are the best. Never. Confusing…always to the point and precise!! I repeat. tHE BEST !!

  12. Wow. It looked great, in the last video. The clasps and hood make it look awesome!!! Do you write up a blueprint or diagram, so you know what the dimensions will be. The way your brain works is unimaginable. You were probably the same, with your landscape designs. You are enough!! Donโ€™t ever doubt this. We are here because you are amazing. Thank you for sharing your talent. โค๏ธ๐Ÿงถ. I want to make this for my grandsonโ€™s wedding. Now I have to pray for him, to get engaged. ๐Ÿ˜‚ so I will have time to finish it.

  13. This is very beautiful, I didn't get to hear the actual amount of yarn you used (my sound went out). Love it thanks Crystal ๐Ÿ‘

  14. hi crystal i have a question can I do dcs instead of the bobble st for that row would it be just a dc in every st thank you

  15. I promised myself I wouldnโ€™t get any more yarn after packing 6 totes full but I need to find just the right yarn to make this for myself for my birthday next month, even if it takes me more than a month to get it done. This is marvelously beautiful.

  16. Love it I'm gonna start making mine.. Hugs Lynn Weasenforth ๐ŸŒน๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ˜ โ™ฅ๏ธ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿค— Merry Christmas Crystal…to you and your family have a very Happy New year ๐ŸŽ‰โ™ฅ๏ธ๐Ÿ’ฏ

  17. Itโ€™s beautiful! Wow! I love you modeling it in the beginning. Own it girl! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’—โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿงถ

  18. Beautiful drape and design! It drapes like a #3 weight yarn or below. Iโ€™d have to make it larger by adding additional stitch count. Iโ€™m 5โ€™ 8โ€ so the length would probably still be good. Iโ€™m undecided about arm/hand holes. The yarn and color is beautiful as well. Iโ€™m really into mustard this year.
    I did make a baby cape as a gift once. I know this design will look great on everyone. Thank you so much for sharing. .

  19. Absolutely love this and am going to definitely make one for myself when I finish my xmas gifts!
    Have been a follower for a long time, way before you did give aways and will continue to do so. You have to do what is best for you on your channel.
    Happy holidays to you and your family and look forward to seeing you in 2020 xXx

  20. Hey Crystal, I just wanted to say this is absolutely STUNNING!! ๐Ÿ˜ I definitely plan on making this! Iโ€™m thinking one in green, red and purple for the Sanderson sisters ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿคช my one question would be, if I want more of a pointy/ dramatic hood would I increase at the halfway point? Please and thank you โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ’• love your designs and videos!!

  21. I like it better without the arm holes I think your Cape came out wonderful itโ€™s elegant looking I think and you looked really young in this video I had to take a second look because I didnโ€™t know it was you at first you look very young in this video. I love this cape the clasps that you picked are very pretty I think they complement your work really well. Iโ€™ll be starting one in about two weeks canโ€™t wait.

  22. Crystal, you are such a fantastic teacher. Thank you and bless you and your family. I'm going to make this after I get my five current projects done.

  23. This is gorgeous. Iโ€™m afraid, though, to ask how long it took to make it!!! About 2 years in my schedule. โค๏ธlove, love, love it. A great piece w a dress for a Southern winter. Looks good on you, Crystal.

  24. WOWWWW…that cape is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! You are so TALENTED…THANK YOU FOR SHARING!!!๐Ÿงถ๐Ÿงถ๐Ÿงถ๐Ÿ˜Š Merry Christmas everyone ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿป๐ŸŽโ›„๏ธ

  25. This is gorgeous!! I love it! Crystal, would you ever consider making a hat for your bloodhound? I'd love to see a dog hat tutorial

  26. ๐Ÿ‘ธ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿงถ Hi crystal Iโ€™m going to do one as soon as I can I have to many on my hook now ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿฅฐ I really love โค๏ธ it

  27. I love your videos…you make it easy to follow and the way you show which stitch is great..I sometimes get confused on the ends on that last stitch and which stitch to actually start with when turning..thank you Crystal..want to make this, just trying to decide which of my girls would love one..will make and probably have all my daughters wanting one..โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

  28. Love it..๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป I would have put a couple of openings in it so you could put your hands out…๐Ÿค—

  29. I absolutely love this. Ive been waiting on you to make one! My question is….did i miss where you explain how to add arm holes?

  30. Its very pretty but you changed 72 and when you double crochert in the 4 stitch and double crochert on the second round it was 70 and said 72

  31. You made it so easy to follow so I started makes one it may not be like your but it works thank you for sharing I will be sharing on facebook Trisha Hickman

  32. My sister wants one to the ground…so excited…I'm also trying to make it smaller in pink for my daughter…she wants one too…I'm using the same count but a 4mm hook…I'm upto the 2nd row of fans and it seems to be ok…Will got her for a while…love you Crystal….dead set you are my saviour….you have taught me so much when my mum could only teach me a granny square….thankyou.

  33. I've been waiting so long for a cloak video and I'm so glad it has been by you!! I hope to see more cloak patterns by you in the future! Love all your work and thank you so much for making these videos for people!

  34. Hi. I hope you had a very nice Christmas. I would like to buy your new cape clock with hood. I can't find it on Estys. Are you going to post one? Thanks for all your hard work.

  35. Embroidery floss might be a good thread to use for the heavier clasps like that, you can separate the threads and you would have a better chance of matching the garment. Just my opinion.

  36. Thanks for the totorial, I made mine its long and beautiful, I made it in red. Just in time for my self BD gift in February

  37. I'm not understanding how to do arm holes. Can you refer me to a differant tutorial or, to help me out. I asked the question and a few others on Facebook but they kept getting refused.

  38. The cape tutorial is great! I did the cape following your tutorial. Excellent educational tutorial. You are great!! I have been following you for some time and made few things following your videos. Thank you. I took some pics of it if interested in seeing it. Thank you again!
