A Sweet Little Crown

I am attempting to write more patterns. They take loads and loads of time. I’m getting there. Find them: Ravelry, Etsy, and Facebook.

A Sweet Little Crown
by Regina S Graham

Size: 3-10 year/19-20” head circumference

Adorn crown with desired bling, crystals, buttons, pearls, beads, etc.

Can be mod-podged or starched for added sturdiness.

 without frill edging
F/3.75mm hook
Worsted Weight Yarn (I’ve used Red Heart with Love and Loops and Threads Impeccable)
Special stitches:
Cross “X” stitch: sk 1 st, dc in next st, dc in skipped st
Front post slip stitch (fpslst): insert hook into stitch/post from RS of work, continue to push hook through to opposite side of stitch/post so that hook is visible again, entire post should be on hook, yo, draw through stitch
***Sizing info: for each inch you want smaller, subtract 2 sts from foundation chain. Continue with pattern, ignoring stitch counts. Likewise, for each inch you would like to make larger, add 2 sts to foundation chain, ignore stitch counts.
Ch 80, sl st to first ch to form ring being careful not to twist. Alternatively, you can to a foundationless single crochet for 80 sts.
Worked in the round.
Rnd 1: ch 1, sc in same st, sc in each st around, sl st to top of ch 1 to join (80)
Rnd 2: ch 2, hdc in same st, hdc in each st around, sl st to top of ch 2 to join (80)

If you have any adjustments to make, want to send me your stitch counts for different sizes, have pictures to share, etc., please send them to me! I will add your corrections. Also, I’m still pretty new to pattern writing. I don’t claim to be perfect. Please let me know if you find errors. I’m happy to fix them. 🙂
