SIMPLE Pretty Princess Crown – FREE Crochet Pattern

20150420_183725

Do you have a little princess that loves to play dress-up? This is a perfect and simple accessory to make to let their imagination take them to far off places of castles, dragons and Prince Charming. My daughter, to no surprise, was very excited about this pattern. She was jumping up and down next to me while I wove in the ends. She still puts it on first thing when she gets home!

Here she is:

This is my first pattern that comes in different sizes! I used my “techy” hat calculator to determine my stitch counts for the circumferences of the crowns. There are 4 sizes: 0-6 months, 6-12 months, 1-3 years and 4+ years.

This pattern is written in US TERMS. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

  • Put them in the order you would like to “string” them.
  • With an alternate color (I used off white), CH 20.
  • Depending on the size of the heart, sl st and chain to attach the back of each heart to the garland
    • Small: sl st to post of DC, CH 1, sl sl to post of DC
