I made this crochet Birthday Crown for my niece and she loved it. I want to share this pattern with you all and I hope that you enjoy as much as I did while making it.
You can make it all sizes for adults or kids, and using any leftover of yarn you have at home.
- T-shirt yarn or bulky yarn
- Crochet hook 6mm
- White fingering yarn
- Crochet hook 2.5mm
- Stitch markers
- Yarn needle
- Embroidery thread
Abbreviations (U.S. Terms):
- CH: chain
- SL ST: slip stitch
- SC: single crochet
- HDC: half double crochet
- DC: double crochet
- TR: treble crochet
- MR: magic loop/ring
- INC: increase
- Rep * to *: repeat from * to *
- R: round
- ST: stitch
First, you have to measure the head of the person you are going to make the crown.
You need a foundation chain that size you already measured, but it needs to be a multiple of 9. You close your foundation chain with an SL ST to create a circle.
Row 1: CH 1 (doesn’t count as 1st S). 1 SC in each stitch of foundation chain, finish the R with 1 SL ST.
Repeat Row1, 3 more times.
Until now, you have 4 R of SC, you can make less or more, depending on how high you want your crown to be.
Row 5: CH 1 (doesn’t count as 1st S). * 1 SC. 1 HDC,1 DC. 1 TR. 1 DC. 1 HDC. 1 SC. 2 SL ST *. Rep * to * until finish the row. And finish with 1 SL ST.
Row 6: CH 1 (doesn’t count as 1st S). 1 SL ST in each of S from the previous row, except in the treble. In each TR, make CH 1. 3DCCJ. 1 SL ST all in the same TR. You will have a bobble in your crown.
Now it is time to fasten off and weave in yarn.
Here you have a diagram of the pattern repeat in the crown.
White Circle Pattern:
Make a MR
Row 1: 6 SC inside MR
Row 2: 6 INC. (12 ST)
Row 3: * 1 SC. 1 INC *. Rep * to *. (18 ST)
Row 4: * 2 SC. 1 INC *. Rep * to *. (24 ST)
Now you just have to embroider the number in the white circle and attach it to the crown.
