Vinga Belted Cape - Be So Fine Yarn Version - FREE Crochet Pattern

Vinga Belted Cape - Be So Fine Yarn Version - FREE Crochet Pattern

Vinga Belted Cape - Be So Fine Yarn Version - FREE Crochet Pattern

Belted capes are one of my all-time favorite crochet layers to wear. The belted cape offers the illusion of shaping due to the placement of the belt. If you cinch your waist with the minimum amount of fabric required and leave the bulk to the "sleeves" the ratio of more sleeve to waist suggests an hourglass shape.

The pattern is written for two yarn weights. This one is for Be So Fine Yarn fingering weight yarn. Click here for the worsted weight version in Be So Brave Yarn.

The cape as designed is 24" long but you can work another repeat of the pattern (12 rows) for additional length.

For a more relaxed layering look, the cape is equally as pretty without the belt.

Thank you for choosing to knit and crochet Kristin Omdahl patterns!
I know that you have thousands of choices for buying yarn and body care products. I want you to know what makes MY products special, and feel good about shopping the Kristin Omdahl brand.
Kristin Omdahl products have a heart! That’s right, a portion of every sale supports the charity I established: Project Kristin Cares.
I am a survivor of domestic violence, a hugely hidden problem in our society. You, or someone you know, has been affected by it, or is still suffering now. Statistics show that 1 in 3 women, and 1 in 4 men have been victims of domestic violence during their lifetimes.
But because it is so rarely discussed, I always felt like I was alone. One of the worst parts for me was that feeling of loneliness and having a dirty secret that had to be hidden.
Through my charity, Project Kristin Cares, we can make a difference in the lives of people who have been affected by domestic violence. I want to share the message that victims are not at fault, not alone and should not be embarrassed to share their stories.
Kristin Omdahl products are beautiful, thoughtful and valuable. But even more importantly, every time you purchase a product from my company, a portion of the sale supports
Project Kristin Cares. Please help me knock out domestic violence, one sale at a time.
xoxo, Kristin
