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 crochet 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…

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.

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.

R3: ch 2 (counts as 1st hdc)  Hdc in each st.  Join with slip stitch to the top of the starting chain.

R4:  sl st in next st, *skip 2 st,  in next stitch, work [4dc, ch 3, sl st in previous dc (forms the picot), 3 dc], skip 2 st, sl st in next st*, repeat * to * around.  Join with sl st to starting st.  Fasten off and weave in ends.

  1. Great pattern! Easy and quick! Turned out perfect I used the chart and made two different sizes for a new baby. Thank you!

  2. Hello, May I ask if this pattern is in US or UK terms?
    I’ve just learned to crochet (in the UK) and I admit to finding the difference in patterns a bit confusing.
    Thank you.

    1. This pattern is AMAZING!!! Thank you so much for sharing this with your fellow crochet friends! The pattern is beautifully written and I love making them. They are perfect. I am so grateful to you for sharing it free. I am also going to purchase it as well!

  3. I LOVE this pattern! I was making my second one for a new baby today when a thought struck me. My girlfriends and I are waiting (and waiting) for Covid to go away, or for us all to be vaccinated, saving up all the dates we haven’t managed to celebrate since March this year. We’ve been discussing, on & off, whether we should have a “themed event” & if so, what theme? We’ve missed birthdays, including “big” ones, a 30, 40, 50 and 70 birthday, a hen party, a Golden wedding anniversary, (we let the men go to those…) . then it struck me, we have all struggled so hard this year, I’ve been on lockdown in my grimy little flat, badly in need of a decorator, since March, because between Fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid Arthritis and chemo meds, I have little to no immune system, some of my girls are still working, the midwife, the nurses, the Carers, then there are the brides to be, (poor, poor innocents ?) the Grannys who risk their own health & in some cases, marriages, to care for their grandbabies so that Mum & Dad can go to work? What better to suit all of these wonderful, selfless sweethearts, women who have supported their families and each other throughout the pandemic, than to make them all Queens for a day? Even the boys can be queens for the day, maybe one or two already are, I suspect ? what do you think. Crowns with “jewels” for everyone, especially those of us still bald or patchy “chemo heads.” We deserve it, don’t we? So do you, Cheryl, I’ve looked forward to your emails all year, thank you for the many times you & your “pup tales” have brightened my day. xxx

      1. I love this pattern! Thank you so much for sharing. Along with every birthday card I have sent for a lockdown birthday, I have sent a crocheted crown. they have been so well recieved and enjoyed. I am now thinkiing about making them to give at christmas to replace the traditional cracker. I am thinking of… a little christmas material pouch, containing a crown, with enough room to add a small table gift or chocolate and a hand written joke or note. A new christmas tradition in the making!

        Many, many thanks.

  4. Okay Christine, you made me cry. I’m making this for my granddaughters birthday, maybe I’ll make one for us all princess, queens, Princes’ and kings alike. We all deserve it after the debacle that was 2020:)

  5. Greetings from Dracut, Massachusetts!!
    Thank you for a great pattern.
    I will be making one each for my grandchildren. Gracie is 7 and loves pink, so I’ll make hers pink. EJ is 5 and likes blue, so his will be blue. Declan is 4 and likes green, so I’ll make his green.
    I also do diamond painting and have tons of left over “diamonds” that I will use to make them each beautiful for them.
    Thank You again for this cool pattern. God Bless you and your hubs along with Cricket and Winston!! ??

  6. Hey! Great pattern. After finished, should I wash and block it? It looks a bit more like a flower when on my head. Thanks!

    1. You certainly can. I did NOT block mine, but the crown could be more floppy with a different type of yarn.

  7. i am struggling with the dc into previous hdc. is there a how to anywhere? I have been googling for a good 30 min now.

    1. Row 2 is a X stitch round. When you start the round you chain and this counts as a stitch. If you were just to work a row of stitches around, you would work in the NEXT stitch. But because this round ix X stitches and you need to form the X back over the stitch you just worked, you go into the last stitch of the previous row for that 2nd stitch in the round. The chain plus this stitch forms the first X.

      I hope that helps.

  8. I love this pattern! It’s so simple yet so effective. I’ve made two already and they are both loved by the recipients.
    The sizing table is a good place to start for rough idea of stitches but I like checking length the starting chain on the person’s head for an accurate fit.
    I’ve just bought this pattern on Etsy U.K. because I know I’ll be making this lots, I already have a request from my husband for October 😀

    1. So glad you love the pattern! I agree. It’s best to check the length on the head if you can!

  9. Thank you for this delightful pattern. I am a Special Needs aid. Grade first to third grade. I am making this crown to celebrate their special Birthdays to wear . I’m so excited to share this with my students.
    Thank you

  10. This is my go-to crown pattern. I made a couple for my kids a few years ago and the youngest just came to request one of her own. I looked a couple other patterns and then decided to come back to one I knew worked and the kids liked.
