Instructions for Gored Cloak by eqos Instructions for Gored Cloak by eqos
For this pattern: [link]

If you repost this, give me credit and link back to this page! It takes a lot of work to draft patterns, so show your appreciation.

This is just a diagram showing how to put the pieces together. I assume you already know how to sew.

You sew all the triangles together with the points all together at the top. It will make a half circle. Cut a curve in the middle that is about 15"-20" (this is for the neckhole). Sew the hood pieces together along the long edges so it makes a fat rectangle, then fold it in half and sew the top edge together. Then sew the bottom edge of the hood to the neckhole, pleating it to make it fit.

How would I go about printing this as a pattern, or is that not intended use?

Great pattern, easy to follow and put together, I made some adjustments to make a real cool cloak for my 8 year old (his birthday, and he wants to be a knight).  When I get everything finished I will take a picture and post for you.

Thank you for this infographic. I have just started attending Viking re-enactments and I have been given a piece of gorgeous turquoise Harris twead - the real stuff LOL! - that has been sitting in an old lady's loft and has moth holes in it :( 
I was thinking of a small shoulder cape and your cloak pattern is absolutely the best way to cut out the good pieces of wool fabric and yet still make a full garment.
Thank you!

Are two of the large triangles ment to be 12 inches or was it a mistake...

If I were to make removable a liner because it would be too cold for Canadian winters alone but to hot in the summer with a layer that's as thick as 2 pieces of polar fleece what do you think would be less noticeable but still work for holding it together - metal snap buttons or a zipper?
Reply

eqos Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2014   Artisan Crafter
I'm like 5 months late on this, however: I think the snaps would definitely be less noticeable, and easier to sew in. A zipper would hold it together more strongly, I suppose, but snaps would be easier overall.

Fantastic pattern! I had a piece of fabric I intended on making a cloak from, but it was too short for the usual half-circle - this absolutely was able to work with what I had. Many thanks and many compliments!

HEY HEY!! Me and my brother made this cloak about a year ago and never got around to taking any pictures of the here is a link to a Mediafire folder with like 5 pictures in it.

[link]

We put a lot of ware into them. I (the one in brown) used Velcro to keep the front closed all the way. But my brother (the one in black) used a button to keep it closed.

I just wanna say thanks so much for giving us a FANTASTIC pattern to go on you ROCK!

Thanks for showing me! I like what you've done. The velcro looks great, it gives it a nice smooth closure. Fun photos too!

I've been wanting to make a nice full reversible cloak for years, but the material costs put it way out of my budget since I had my eye on $30/yard wools. Your pattern only uses HALF of what my pattern calls for! Thank you so much!

I like this cloak. I am hoping to make one this weekend if i get the money to buy some material. This is going to be my first "big" project. Love that you got some instructions for it and share freely. Thanks! Do you know of any other artists that have other patterns shared too? I want to make this and possibly a couple other things i see you have, but love to see more. Thanks for the great patterns!

I'm glad you like the pattern! I have seen a few other patterns pop up, but no one comes to mind as a major contributor. If you haven't looked in the patterns gallery, that's a good starting place. [link] (even though most of the stuff in there shouldn't be in there :roll: ) You can sort the deviations by popularity, which is really helpful in this gallery.

Ye gods that's a complicated way to make a cloak!

It looks pretty cool though, and uses less fabric than a half-circle usually does. I'm not scared by complication!

I can get a half circle and a hood out of the same fabric by pretty much cutting a half circle. That's a *huge* piece of fabric. What you gain in careful cutting, you'd lose in seam allowances.

I am familiar with quicker and easier methods. I don't need a pattern to draw a half-circle. I like designing harder methods. It's cool.

Diagrams like this would be SOOO helpful for all your patterns. I personally think your patterns are well thought out, but I haven't made any thing with them because I cant fully figure out where all the pieces go. :-C Please please please make more diagrams like this?? BTW my compliments on your work.

I hate doing it. If I were to write instructions and make diagrams for all of them, it would be with the intention of selling them, because I don't want to do THAT much work for everyone else's benefit and not get anything out of it.

Most of my patterns are put together the same way, so once you figure that it, it works for all of them. This one is different, though.
