Riley Bobble Cape Crochet Pattern

Maker
1/27/2020

I began crocheting in 2014 with no expectations on where this craft would carry me.  I taught myself in college in order to relieve anxiety and stress.  What was once a hobby for me became so much more.  I’ve met so many beautiful souls since my craft journey began and I anticipate meeting more as I progress.  

You may wonder what inspired me to design and my inspirations are plenty.  I have a love hate relationship with shopping, so when I realized my abilities to create my own garments it was a win-win.  Creating womens’ garments are my favorite things to make and I absolutely love sharing my ideas with everyone.  Today I will be sharing the Riley Bobble Cape with you.  I truly hope it delights you as it did me!

Pattern Notes

Pattern is written in standard US terms and non-charted.

Read through pattern carefully before beginning.

Ch 1 or ch-2 does not count as a stitch.

All bobbles are made on the wrong side of the project.

Increases will be made in 5 places throughout the pattern.  Feel free to place your stitch markers in each increase space as you go along.

Dc from increases counts as a double crochet for the following row.

(Optional): For your last st on each row, work in the top of the turning chain for a straighter edge.

For a tutorial on how to create foundation stitches watch below.
