PRINCESS CROWNS for mum and baby


There’s a baby’s first birthday coming up – and you do know she is the belle of the ball – and every belle needs a crown.
Mum needs one too – it’s her extra-special day as well.
So come along, join me as we make two beautiful crowns for two lovely people.

Materials used : Today I’ve used some of our lovely Indian polyester kamal kadai lace weight polyester yarn with a 2.5 mm crochet hook ; few beads.
General material info : I think that any knitting cotton yarn will work splendidly for this project.  Of course a metallic yarn and beads will add to the sheen and bling.

Here are sizing charts for general head sizing :



Instruction information

There are two crown patterns in this blog write up.  For the first free one, I’ve chosen the cute crown from Ira Rott.
So let’s mosey on over to the free pattern at

The only thing I’d like to add here is check your gauge and / or stitch count repeat
If you take a look at the chart provided, you’ll see that the stitch count is in multiples of 6.
Please read through the instructions fully before starting your work.

Come along then..  what are you waiting for?? 

Off you go to the pattern sheet for the cute lil princess crown. :)

For the 2nd crown / tiara, I found this chart which looked just right for the mum.  Come along and let’s work on this one, shall we?

Remember to check the head measurements chart given in the earlier link/pattern sheet and at the top of this blog.

Start : with fsc in multiples of 15 for the circumference needed for the head.
Join with a sl-st to the 1st fsc, keeping the chain flat. (Check Note)
At all times, keep in mind the stretch of your yarn – more the stretch, lesser the number of multiples needed.

Note : Check out this video on how to keep your chain flat without twisting

Round 1 : sc in the 1st fsc and in each fsc all around.  Join with a sl-st to the 1st fsc.

Round 2 : sc in the 1st sc and in each sc all around.  Join with a sl-st to the 1st sc.

Now here’s where it gets interesting.  The chart shows the start of the tiara from the next round, as we’ve created a base with the 1st two rounds.  If you are using a thinner yarn, and want a wider base, rep Round 2 till you are happy with the width of your base.
How do you decide if you are happy?  Well, you need to calculate height.  You have worked 2 rounds, and our total pattern is 8 rounds.  The 1st 2 rounds have been worked in sc, and the next 6 rounds will be worked with dc.
2 rounds of sc = 1 round of dc (in height).
So now calculate how high/wide your crown is going to be and decide if you want to increase the base.  Got it?

I am going to carry on numbering, so please do not get confused if you have worked more rounds for the base – just carry on with Round 3, when you are done with the base.

Round 3 : dc in 1st 4 sc ; ch 3, sk next 2 sc, sc in the next 7 sc ;
*ch 3, sk next 2 sc, dc in the next 4 sc ; ch 3, sk next 2 sc, sc in the next 7 sc* ;
rep *to* all around ;
ch 3, sk last 2 sc and join with a sl-st to the 1st st.

Round 4 : dc in 1st dc ; ch 1, dc in the same dc ;
*ch 2, sk next 2 dc, (dc in the next dc ; ch 1, dc in the same dc) ;
ch 3, sk next sc, sc in the next 5 sc ;
ch 3, sk next sc, rep (to) once* ;
rep *to* all around ;
ch 3, and join with a sl-st to the 1st dc.

From this round on, we will use a “V”-st which is (dc ; ch 1, dc) all in the same
ch-sp.

Round 5 : sl-st into the 1st ch-1 sp ; “V”-st in the same ch-1 sp ;
*ch 2,  “V”-st in the next ch-2 sp ; ch 2, “V”-st in the next ch-1 sp ;
ch 3, sk next sc, sc in the next 3 sc ;
ch 3, sk next sc, “V”-st in the next ch-1 sp* ;
rep *to* all around ;
ch 3, and join with a sl-st to the 1st “V”-st.

Round 6 : sl-st into the 1st “V”-st ; “V”-st in the same “V”-st ;
*ch 2, “V”-st in the next dc ; ch 2, “V”-st in the next dc ;
ch 2, “V”-st in the next “V”-st ; ch 3, sk next sc, sc in the next sc ;
ch 3, sk next sc, “V”-st in the next “V”-st* ;
rep *to* all around ; ch 3, sk next sc and join with a sl-st to the 1st st.

Round 7 : sl-st into the 1st “V”-st ; “V”-st in the same “V”-st ;
*(ch 2, “V”-st in the next “V”-st) ; ch 2, “V”-st in the next ch-2 sp ;
rep (to) once ; sk next sc and ch-3 sps, “V”-st in the next “V”-st* ;
rep *to* all around ;
sk next sc and ch-3 sps, and join with a sl-st to the 1st st.

In our final round we will use a picot, which is (ch 3, sl-st in the 3rd ch from hk).

Round 8 : sl-st into the 1st “V”-st ; sc in the same “V”-st ;
*ch 3, “V”-st in the next “V”-st ;
ch 2, “V”-st in the next dc ; picot + “V”-st in the next dc ;
ch 2, “V”-st in the next “V”-st ;
ch 3, sc in the next 2 “V”-sts* ;
rep *to* all around, ending with a sc in the last ch-1 sp of the last “V”-st.
