So many little girls love to play dress up or pretend to be their favorite Disney Princess. I was no exception, and that spirit was something I never grew out of. I love Disney movies and the characters they embody. My Enchanted Rose Cape was inspired by one of my favorites. Fashioned after a scene from Beauty and the Beast, I created this caplet/cape combination piece to add to a costume that I am in the process of creating.
As I was creating this piece, I saw the potential for so many possibilities that could come out of this one fashion item. Changing the color to ivory, or even a sparkly white yarn, this would make a lovely winter bridal cape. In fact, just changing the color to match something in your wardrobe would make this a perfect piece for a formal cover-up. It could be an everyday poncho/cape in tones of grays or warm browns. This could also be transformed into other costume capes for characters such as Red Riding Hood, Rose Red, or any other fairy-tale or medieval character. The possibilities in color choices are endless, and the ideas know no bounds. Have fun with it!!
It doesn’t stop there. If you prefer to not include the longer cape, this would make a cute little caplet, or remove the hood and it makes a nice poncho. Adjust the size and you can change the whole look! With this easy repeat pattern and stitch, anything is possible!

-You can use a smaller or larger hook to make this square depending on your tension.
-This pattern is in multiples of 3, so you can make this as big or small as you want.
-Just continue the repeat pattern until your piece is as big or as wide as you want it to be to go onto the next step if you feel like I stopped too soon in the video tutorial. This pattern is very versatile and you can make this as big as you want.
-This piece works the poncho first, then the cape, then the hood last.
-The hood is made separately and then sewn onto the cape.
-For measurements and to learn how big mine turned out to be, watch the beginning of the video tutorial.
-This took me about 15 hours to complete from beginning to end.
