I've always loved these prop crochet baby outfits but as usual I don't have the money for the pattern and I never found a free one online, so I studied some photos hard and somewhat came with my own pattern. I am happy with my results and don't mind sharing so here it is, hope you like and if you have any questions don't be afraid to ask...and like I said this is my pattern so for personal use please and thank you.
*~This pattern is for the cape only, I named it universal cape because you can use and color and other designs to make many types of baby capes.~*
