Crochet Cape Pattern

Posted on Last updated: /

After we’ve made the Witch Hat and a Broom for Cosmo for his Halloween Witch Costume (click to get the complete set of patterns & How-To tutorials), we found that he needed a cool collar cape to make him look mysterious. Hence, we designed a crochet cape pattern and made a purple crochet cape for him. We also made another black cape for his wife, Hello Kitty, for her Halloween Devil costume. For now, let’s get the crochet cape pattern and make it for Cosmo for his Halloween Witch costume.

I hope by now you know who Cosmo is and who his wife is. No worries if you have missed out on the previous patterns, as this might be your first time visiting Craft Passion.

The total length of our crochet cape pattern is 7″, with a drape length of 4.5″. This free crochet pattern is made up of three simple components; collar, drape, and tie. Begin by crocheting the collar, followed by the drape which is connected to the collar; then use chain stitches to finish off the tie until it measures 14″.

Similar to the Witch Hat we crochet for Cosmo, this doll cape crochet pattern is crochet with the same yarn weight, which is light worsted (US), or DK (UK), or 8-ply (AU). If you are using other yarn weights, together with slightly different crochet tension, your hat could come out bigger or smaller.  If the sizing of the cape is important to you, make sure to do a test gauge to compare with the crochet gauge of this pattern. Comparing the test gauges measurements will let you know your final crochet cape before proceeding with the project. Change yarn or hook size if needed to obtain the desired size.

We crochet two sets of this collar cape for Cosmo and his wife for their Halloween dress-up event. Cosmo is wearing a purple cape to match his purple hat in his Halloween Witch Costume (click the link to get the full costume patterns). At the same time, his wife is wearing a black cape as part of her red devil costume. How sweet to see both of them dressed up and getting ready for the Halloween party

Before we proceed to the free crochet cape pattern, do you know why Witches dress the way they do? Some Witches have a stronger fashion sense than others, but generally, they adore wearing long, flowy, and comfortable clothing. Think dresses, robes, capes, and cloaks! This type of clothing allows them to move around freely without restraints. It kind of makes them look magical, too, doesn’t it? 

With that said, Cosmo and his wife, who love their cape so much, are sure to have a strong fashion sense… Let’s prepare for the year’s biggest costume party!

Devil Cape Crochet Pattern

Yield: Devil Cape For Doll
Active Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Difficulty: Beginner
Estimated Cost: USD 2 - 5

After we’ve made the Witch Hat and a Broom for Cosmo for his Halloween Witch Costume, we found that he needed a cool collar cape to make him look mysterious. Hence, we designed a crochet cape pattern and made a purple crochet cape for him. We also made another black cape for his wife, Hello Kitty, for her Halloween costume, which we will be sharing soon. For now, let’s get the crochet cape pattern and make it for Cosmo for his Halloween Witch costume.

This collar cape fits most of the amigurumi patterns in the Animal Wild Life Collection or any stuffed animal about the same size.

Cape: Total length: 7 inches, Drape length 4.5 inches

Different yarn and crochet tension will yield a different size of the final crochet pieces. Make sure to make a test piece to find out roughly what your final product will be. Change yarn or hook size if needed. I am using the same yarn as the amigurumi cat (and most of my amigurumi animals), 8-ply (AU) or DK (UK) or Light Worsted (US). Thus, if you are crocheting these outfits for your amigurumi animals, simply use the same yarn to crochet them.
