@Abbeeroad recently posted some Fabulous Scrappy Feather Crowns and in the conversation I saw mention of a crocheted crown posted elsewhere by @AntBee, that one didn’t seem to have it’s own post so I had to go looking for it and when found, it linked to a pattern for a people sized project that inspired me to make a wee little mini version of my own, and here they are! Adorable, no?
I used the 2 golden yarns I had in stash. The chunkier version was made with chainless sc foundation stitch, if you don’t know this stitch, it is easy to learn and a valuable addition to your crochet repertoire. That was followed with a row of sc stitched up with some tension to create more of a band shape and less of a floppy circle. The points are sometimes called cathedral edging and are made by skipping 2 st, 3 dc in the same stitch, ch 3 picot, 3 dc into the same stitch, skip 2 st, slip stitch and repeat.
With the finer yarn, it was tricky to pick up the stitches for chainless foundation so those are made with a sc chain followed by a row of hdc, then a row of tight sc, then the cathedral/picot edges.
The foundation chain will need 6 stitches for each point, so a 3 pointed crown = 18 stitches, a 4 pointed crown = 24 stitches, 30 for 5 points and so on.
