Skill Level : Easy
Materials: 
  • Worsted weight yarn of choice. I used Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn or Vanna’s Choice Worsted. Other similar worsted weight colors or shades will work great too! 
* You’ll be working with two strands of the color for the entire pattern unless otherwise noted.
* The number at the end of each row is the stitch count for the row(#)
* Chain stitch does not count in stitch count!
* Hook size(s) : N/P -15 (10.00 mm)
* Tapestry Needle
  • Gauge for Cape 4” x 4” swatch = 4 rows of 8 dc 
  • Gauge for Mask - 2” x 2” swatch = 5 rows of 5 sc 
Stitches used:
(ch)chain, (st) stitch, (sl st) slip stitch, (sc) single crochet, 
(sc dec) single crochet decrease, (hdc) Half double crochet, (dc)double crochet,
(dc dec) double crochet decrease, (trc) treble crochet 
*Be Advised: Since this cape ties around the neck please use with caution, especially with young children. I would recommend never leaving a child unattended while playing or using as a prop for a baby. :) Thank you!

Oh my word my children and nieces and nephews will be so thrilled with these! They are all really into the super heroes right now, especially the boys but even the girls like bat girl so these will be awesome! I'm not sure if I can wait until Christmas to give them to them!
