Think Happy Thoughts { children's hooded caplet }

Welcome to the second installment in a 6 week series, Think Happy Thoughts!
For the next 6 weeks, I will be featuring a free crochet pattern, pattern reviews, and even a giveaway or two.
The theme of this series is centered around fairy tales, and all things magical and mystical.

So, follow me, and take a leap into the land of Happily Ever After...

It's chain mail armor for babies!

If Prince Charming doesn't sweep you off your feet, then maybe a knight in shining armor slaying the fire breathing dragon will do the trick.

This little caplet is so cute, and I have almost convinced myself to make one of my own... perhaps a little longer around the shoulders?
It is perfect for keeping those little baby heads and ears warm, though.

This pattern is really easy, and is very close in design to my Toddler Scarflet pattern.
If you wanted to make it a little more girly, add a cute flower, a tie closure, or lengthen the section around the shoulders.
There really are so many possibilities!

I hope you enjoy this pattern, and forgive me for the sometimes blurry pictures...
Photographing a 5 month old can be tricky!

Once you have finished your Children's Hooded Caplet, come upload your pictures into my Think Happy Thoughts flikr group!
I can't wait to see what you come up with!
