This girl! I love this photo. I’m not sure if it is the sweet innocence with a touch of sass or if it’s the swim goggles with the crown action going on. Maybe it reminds me of my own son when he was a little guy and loved to imagine and role play as his favorite “character” as he used to call them. Or maybe of my own childhood memories playing in our basement with my sister and our neighborhood friend, Krissy, of whom I’ve lost track over the years. I distinctly remember a halter top and some bell bottom jeans and feeling ‘oh so grown up’. And if only I’d had this crochet crown pattern…
The thing is… we all need a crown now and then. Because, you know what? You and me? We are special, wonderful, marvelous human beings. And sometimes we need to put on that crown. In our pajamas. While we vacuum. It’s a reminder that life is full of new beginnings, changes and choices. Dream. Dream big. Put on your crochet crown, crank up the music and let it all out. Dance until you laugh and are so tired you have to catch your breath. And remember that your worth is beyond measure. You are queen of your own life.
So let’s talk about this crochet crown pattern for a moment. Even though I KNOW you are totally going to make one of these for yourself.. maybe you want to make one for a little one too. So I’ve got you covered. Just find the size you want to make in this chart and chain the corresponding number of stitches to start.
Crochet Crown Pattern
Here is what you will need:
- US G6/4.00 mm crochet hook (here are my favorite crochet hooks)
- Lion Brand Wool-Ease in Gold, 3/8 oz (25-30 yards).
- Tapestry needle and scissors

Find links to stitches on the “Tutorial” menu: Getting Started will show basic stitches used in many patterns and Crochet Stitch Dictionary shows our growing collection of crochet stitch tutorials.
Referring to the chart, chain the number of chains indicated for the particular size you want to make. Join with a slip stitch to the first chain, being careful not to twist the chain. If possible, try the chain ring on the person who will be wearing the crown. It will stretch a bit when done. But now is a good time to change sizes if you need to.
R1: ch 2 (counts as 1st hdc) Hdc in each chain. Join with slip stitch to the top of the starting chain.
R2: This row is a X stitch double crochet round. To start, Chain 3 (counts as 1st dc), dc in the previous hdc (in this case, the last stitch of the previous round, this double crochet should cross over the starting chain 3 (see photo). Going forward again, skip the starting ch and *skip the next st, dc in the next st, dc in the previously skipped stitch, crossing over the stitch just worked*. Repeat * to * around the crown. Join with a sl st to the top of the starting ch 3.
