Crocheted Cape, Hat and Boots for 18″ doll

DSCN6271This little outfit was fun and quick to crochet.   Each year I make outfits for the dolls I purchased my great nieces and I believe this is the first time I have crocheted anything.

I purchased this cape pattern from the Craftsy website.  I was pleased to get it on sale but I believe the pattern is now $5.99.  It has sizing from doll to adult.  It also has a video link to learn the chain-less foundation half double crochet which I found easy to learn.

The yarn I used was Impeccable from Michael’s Crafts in a Fresh Lilac with the matching solid color.  I used 1 skein of the multi color and scraps of the solid.

You must do a diameter measurement to make sure your gauge is correct.  I found this a little difficult, since it is hard to get your foundation perfectly round.  I did go down 1 size hook and could probably have gone down 2.  Other than that this is a very easy pattern.  I crocheted the last 2 rows in a contrasting color and continued around the cape with this color yarn also.

After finishing the cape I decided to crochet a matching hat and found a great website that lists all kind of free patterns for 18″ dolls.  Here is that website.  I used this pattern for the hat and crocheted the last row in the same contrast yarn as the cape.  For the flower I used this pattern and crocheted it with a size D hook.  The flower is sewn on with yarn.

I used this pattern for the boots and added antique buttons from my grandmother’s collection using thread.

  1. Cute! I’ll have to show these pics to my mom – she’s the crocheter in the family. I think she could recreate this for my youngest, who’d love to have the set.
