For this Cape and hood project you will need:

YARN: 4 skeins of 282 meters / 308 yards 4 ply US 10 ply AU, may take 3 but I barley had any yarn left after the third, so get one more just in case!

HOOK: 5mm / H hook

 

BB = Black Berry
YO = yarn over
sl st = slip stitch
ch = chain
sc = single crochet
dc = double crochet
sts = stitches
* = repeat what’s in between

 

HOW TO MAKE A BLACK BERRY

Black Berry stitches will always be worked this same way into the chain. Insert your hook into first chain and pull up a loop, YO and insert your hook back into the same chain, (4 loops on hook) YO and insert your hook back into the same chain, ( 6 loops on hook ) YO and pull through all 6 loops. Ch 1 to secure berry, then sl st into the same ch space.

MAKING THE HOOD

Now pivot your project. We are going to be working on the other side of the original chain.

Row 1
Do a sc attachment and sc in all sts (90 sts) chain 1 and cut your yarn.

Turn your work where you have the back of the single crochets facing you. You should have an obvious fold, if you can see where it easily fold back, this is the side where you want the hood to fall.

Count over 20 sts from one corner and place a marker. Do the same from the other corner. In between the markers you should have 50 sts.

 

Row 2
Attach your yarn on the stitch NEXT to the marker to the right, if you’re right handed or to the Left if your left handed. And DC in the next 4 sts, ch 3 and created your BB as before, dc in next 3 sts. Just as you did before. DC in last 3 sts, ch 2 and turn.

Not to make the tie, I made of a chain of 101 and weaved it into the first BB stitch we made. The row below the hood. Weaving it in between every 2 stitches.
