Crochet Tutorial: Enchanted Rose Cape

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!

NOTES:
-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.

Crochet Tutorial: The G.G. (Gorgeous Gal) Cardigan

Designer, Rosetta Getty, created The Granny Square Mixed Media Cardigan. Fashion model, Gigi Hadid, was photographed by paparazzi wearing that sweater, and it exploded all over the Internet. Being the fashion maven that I am, I had to have it! So, I designed my very own! My G.G. (Gorgeous Gal) Cardigan was an intense work of creative fashion art. I designed it based off the photo. Here I am modeling my version next to the photo of Gigi Hadid wearing hers.

NOTES:
-This pattern is in American crochet terms.
-The cardigan that I made measures: Shoulders: 16 inches, Arm Length: 25 inches, Length of sweater: 37 inches
Recommendation: I would use softer yarn for this project (Caron Simply Soft or Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice). The yarn I used was quite stiff and bulky.

For Larger Sizing:
My recommendations for larger sizes would be to use a larger crochet hook as well as making more rounds on your granny squares. Working a repeat of round 6 once or twice should make your squares larger. You may also make this longer by adding more squares to the length of your cardigan. Another suggestion would be to add additional rounds around each panel when you single crochet around each piece to give it a larger size/width to accommodate your size. To determine the fit of the upper arm: You will have to take your upper arm measurement and make sure your squares are made accordingly. ALL SQUARES HAVE TO BE THE SAME SIZE IN THIS ENTIRE PROJECT.

Gauge:
1 square is 6 inches x 6 inches

Ch: chain
St(s): Stitch(es)
YO: Yarn Over
Sl st: slip stitch
SC: Single Crochet
HDC: Half Double Crochet
DC: Double Crochet
Beginning Cluster (Beg. Cluster): Yarn over, insert hook into stitch, YO, pull through, YO, pull through 2 loops, YO insert hook back into the stitch, YO, pull through, YO, pull through 2 loops, (You should have 3 loops on your hook), YO and pull through all loops.
Cluster Stitch (Cluster):  YO, insert hook into st, YO, pull through, YO, pull through 2 loops, YO, insert hook back into st, YO, pull through, YO, pull through 2 loops, YO, insert hook back into st, YO, pull through, YO, pull through 2 loops (you should have 4 loops on your hook), YO and pull through all 4 loops.

Crochet Tutorial: Lace Collar Necklace

In keeping with the accessories I have been making this week, I created this vintage inspired crochet lace collar. Add a bit of dimension and flair to a plain sweater or top with this elegant scalloped design that is reminiscent of days gone by, yet it is brought to life in contemporary fashion. I paired it with a jewel brooch for an extra vintage touch because that’s how I roll! Have fun with it!

Lace collars have a long history in fashion. I always enjoy finding something vintage and putting a new modern spin on it, yet keeping the historic essence of the piece.
