"Free crochet cape pattern perfect for practicing the basic Tunisian crochet entrelac technique for a beautiful hooded cape perfect for Fall. The Autumn Diamonds Cape is a beautiful first project as we await those crisp Autumn days. Try your hand at this Entrelac hooded Cape to practice some basic Tunisian crochet stitches and techniques! It’s easy enough for a beginner but interesting enough for an advanced crocheter! Like many of my fellow cocheters, I am waiting for Fall to arrive because I am done with this heat! Also Fall is my absolute favorite season for so many reasons. One reason is that my birthday comes in Fall! I love the crisp cool breeze in the Fall, the weather is just perfect for crocheting. I designed this pattern with that cool Autumn breeze in mind. Something to drape around you as you crunch those Fall leaves and have your Apple Cider/Pumpkin Lattes. Ps. I cannot do Pumpkin flavored anything although I don’t mind pumpkins floating around as decor! You could also wear the Autumn Diamonds Cape as you sit by a campfire/bonfire roasting some marshmallows. This free crochet cape pattern is a collaboration for an ongoing Blog Hop hosted by Crochet Foundry Magazine. You can find a lot of amazing free patterns featured over on the blog hop here. I chose to design this gorgeous cape using the Wander Yarn because I have loved working with it in the past. I also designed a Color block Wrap last year for Furls Crochet using this yarn and I absolutely loved how it turned out. You can find the Colors of the Wind Wrap pattern here. I knew I wanted to design something that doesn’t require a Tunisian crochet hook so I went with the Entrelac technique which I recently became hooked on (no pun intended). You can find a complete 3-part series that takes you through the technique over on my YouTube Channel which I highly recommend you watch before getting started. I have included a FULL photo tutorial as part of this pattern which you’ll find throughout the written instructions. I added an oversized hood to give a dramatic effect although the hood is optional. You will need a Tunisian crochet hook for the hood. I also wanted to incorporate the honeycomb stitch in some way because it’s my favorite Tunisian crochet stitch. I used it to add a band to the hood and I love the contrast against the Tunisian simple stitch."
