Crocheted Cape: This pattern gives directions for crocheting the cape shown. The official description: "This cape is crocheted in a cotton in white, black or any pastel shade.

Note: The entire pattern was written in CAPS, which has been preserved.
This is a Mail Order Design pattern, purchased through newspapers. This pattern was marketed as Alice Brooks 5360 in 1936. The newspaper description: "A summer night, starlight and your sheerest frock call for this lacy capelet, which, in turn, calls for crochet hook and a bit of white, pastel or black string. You'll love the soft scarf collar that ties so fetchingly 'neath your chin, so hurry - if you'd enjoy this cape all summer. It will do equally well for a neighborly visit or a more formal occasion".
