Crocheted Tall Baby Crown

Crown for 3 months old baby by HandMadeRukodelky
© 2017 
Quite some time ago I made my first simple crocheted crown for a baby. Depending on a color it could be done for boy or girl. It was a simple crown. Today, you will find a little more elaborate crown (my no. 2). More rows and different design. All our tiny babies should be treated like a prince or a princess.All babies deserve it. They are our precious beings or rather miracles. Put a crown on their heads :-)

In this post I am using a thick cotton yarn (again same color as before - I love these ombre shades), which is a medium #4 weight. I should be using 5 mm hook, but in order for the crown to be stiff and stand up well, I used hook 3.75mm. If you use bigger hook, it will make the crown slightly bigger, but more wobbly. A smaller hook will make the crown slightly smaller and stiffer.

I worked with 7 repeats. Each repeat is about 2" wide, so a "6 repeats" pattern would yield about ~12" crown around, while an "8 repeats" pattern would yield ~16" crown, and so on. Make one or more as party favors, for your teen, or as a fun gift.

Finishing (optional):

Weave into second row your favorite ribbon and tie a bow. Or buy some rhinestones and attach them to the crown. (I yet have to do that, although the crown looks beautiful as is.)
