I have a friend who's looking to make a hooded cloak for herself, but every site she finds online pretty much says, "Here's what the pattern's called, now go find it yourself." I figured asking around here might help a lot. Has anyone got a pattern for a hooked cloak that they're willing to post, or direct me to, or something? I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks in advance.

I haven't tried these yet, personally, but they look pretty good! If you don't mind, let me know how your friend's cloak turns out!  Grin

Ooh, that is a very pretty one, Qwerty. I think I'll keep that pattern around for when I end up making a cloak of my own!
