Plaid Cape for Babies and Girls
"The Crochet Plaid Cape is my way of bringing plaid into spring. The traditional red plaid is beautiful and I have used it for the Buttoned Plaid Cowl and Buttoned Plaid Scarf, but I wanted to do something a little lighter and pinker for Valentines day. It is quite easy to create a plaid combination. Just find two shades of the same color then add white as your lightest color. I have found a lot of plaid combinations can be made using Red Heart With Love Yarn."
