Fasten off. Weave in ends.
To make the hood, you will be sewing a seam along one of the short ends of the cape.
Match the sides/corners of one of the short ends of the cape and, using matching yarn, close the seam. To do this, you can either use the yarn and a yarn needle to sew the seam with a basic whip stitch, or you can use the yarn and a crochet hook and close the seam with slip stitches or single crochet stitches.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
Cut a piece of ribbon that is long approximately 24-36 inches long, depending on the size of the cape that you are attaching it to, or to your personal desired length for the ties.
Measure down approximately 6 inches from the top seam. Weave the ribbon in and out of the shell stitches, beginning at one front edge, working around the back, and ending at the other front edge.
