Self-striping sock yarn and a classic ripple stitch pattern turn this simple capelet into something special. It’s great for playing dress-up or for warmth when an extra layer of clothing is needed. The cape closes with a button tab for smaller children, or pom-pom neck ties for older ones. Suggested materials include 2/fine yarn, crochet hook (size F-5), 2 buttons 1 1/4" (3cm) diameter, and 1 1/2" (3.8cm) diameter pom-pom maker (optional). Fits 6–12 months, 12–18 months, 2–3 years, and 4–5 years.
