The Bat Cape is a hooded capelet that requires minimal sewing. It is quick to work up using super bulky yarn, like Hobbii Honey Bunny yarn, and a large crochet hook. The size can easily be adjusted to fit toddlers, children, and adults, making it a great Halloween costume, pretend play outfit, or cosplay! The wings can be made longer or shorter following the pattern instructions. The hood is one size fits most, and instruction is included for crocheting a smaller hood and extra large hood. Since the pattern offers tips for sizing, you can also crochet this pattern to fit a baby or adult.

This whimsical dress up accessory is great as a kids birthday gift, Christmas or holiday gift, or as a stunning craft fair product. It’s unisex and gender neutral, and so fun for kids. Boys and girls alike will love wearing and flying around in this Waldorf style cape!

This 10-page PDF pattern includes detailed written instructions and 40+ step-by-step photos to guide you through the crochet process.
