Sometimes I decide to design crochet patterns...especially when I can't find one that I like. So I decided to post them free online for everyone else to enjoy! All patterns posted on this blog are my original designs and are for personal use only.

Okay, so we are all about Halloween at our house. If you don't believe me, just check out my costume:
Anyway, because I was so excited for Halloween, I offered to make my nephew a Batman cape for Christmas because obviously, Batman is the coolest superhero ever and my 4-year-old nephew is always pretending to be Batman. So here is what I came up with:
Size H hook.
Black and yellow yarn
Piece of black felt ($.23 at Walmart)
Row 1: Sc in second ch from hook. Sc in remaining chains.
Row 2: Ch 3, turn. (counts as first dc) Dc in each sc
Row 3: Ch 1, turn. Sc in each dc across.
Row 4: Ch 3, turn. Dc in next 30 sc.
Row 5: Ch 3, turn.*2 dc in next dc, dc in next dc. Repeat from
* across. (46 dc)
Row 6: Ch 3, turn. *2 dc in next dc, dc in next 2 dc. Repeat
from * across.
Row 7: Ch 3, turn. *2 dc in next dc, dc in next 3 dc. Repeat
from * across.
Row 8: Ch 3, turn. Dc in each dc across.
Rows 9-35: Repeat row 8.
Yellow oval (pattern modified from
Ch 3. 9 dc in 3rd ch from hook. Sl st in top of
Ch 3. 2 dc in next 3 dc. 3 dc in next dc. 2 dc in next 4 dc.
3 dc in next dc. Dc in last dc. Sl st in top of ch-3.
Ch 3. 2 dc in next 7 dc. 3 dc in next dc. 2 dc in next 10
dc. 3 dc in next dc. 2 dc in next 2 dc. Dc in last dc. Sl st in top of ch-3.
Ch 3. 1 dc in next 15 dc. 3 dc in next dc. 1 dc in next 22
dc. 3 dc in next dc. 1 dc in remaining dc. Sl st to ch-3. Fasten off.
Cut out and attach felt bat symbol onto the yellow oval.
I sewed mine on with black thread.
Attach yellow oval to back of cape. Attach a button on the top of collar, and voila! An awesome Batman cape, ready for action!
