I had a blast creating the Leah Bunny Cape for my little girl, Leah, and I’m happy to be able to share it with you! This hooded cape is worked in one piece (yay, no seams!) starting from the top down. It features a drawstring hooded brim and a button closure. The pattern is written for a Child’s size S/M, but because the size is mostly dependent upon the size of the hood, you could stop the increases a few rows early or use a smaller hook to make a smaller hood. The cape can be any length you want … it’s so easy, just stop when it’s as long as you want it!
This cute woodland bunny cape was inspired by a Lalylala doll named Rita the Rabbit.
I made Rita for my daughter a couple years ago, and she’s been wanting ears just like Rita’s. I decided on a hooded cape because it reminded me of the Beatrix Potter books.
I used Yarn Bee’s Denim in Color. You can find it here. I used a J hook for the entire project. Any aran weight or worsted weight yarn should work fine for this project.
The buttons I found at Hobby Lobby for 50% off! I was doing a jig I loved them so much.
I hate buying patterns when I don’t know what I’m getting, so here’s a little sneak peek at what the pattern pages look like … I’m also here if you need additional help or a video or two explaining the stitches.
