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.
