Who doesn't think that their baby is a tiny Prince or Princess?

What little Prince or Princess doesn't deserve a crown of their very own?

Today I (Jessica) am showing you how to crochet your own super easy beginner newborn crown, so that all the Princes and Princesses in your life can have their own! This project takes about 30-45 minutes start to finish, depending on your crocheting speed, and makes a memorable gift for any new baby.

I have to thank one of my best friends, Suzzy, whose gorgeous new daughter Roxanna was the tester for this crochet crown pattern. And I couldn't have asked for a more adorable model! I mean really, check out those cheeks, and that tiny rosebud mouth. Doesn't she just make you want to eat her up? When she found out she was having a girl (yay!) the only thing Suzzy asked me to make her was a crochet crown, and how could I say no?

Without further ado!

Newborn Crown Crochet Pattern

G or H Crochet Hook. A G hook will yield a very small crown, an H will yield a larger one (almost a 0-3 month size)
Worsted weight yarn. I found that a cotton yarn will hold it's shape the best. The light pink crown above is a bamboo yarn, and the dark pink is 100% cotton.
Small jewels, the kind with holes for sewing onto things. I got a bag of 20 for about $2 at Joann's!
sewing thread to match the color of your yarn, and a needle.

Key
St: stitch
Ch: chain (chain stitch)
Sl St: slip stitch
SC: single crochet
Hdc: half double crochet
DC: double crochet
TC: triple crochet

Row 1: Ch 33**
Row 2: In 2ed st from hook, begin Hdc. Hdc to the end (31 st) ch. 2, turn.
Row 3: Hdc. across. Ch 1, turn.
Row 4: Hdc in next st from hook. DC in next st. TC in next st. ch 2, TC in same st. DC in next st. Hdc in next st.Sl st to bind off, but when you cut leave a long tail of yarn, about 8 inches. Sew the edges of the crown together with your yarn tail.

Now you'll sew on the jewels! You can sew as many or as few as you like, I chose to do three on the front of the crown, with a larger jewel centered between two smaller ones. Just sew them on with regular sewing thread, and you're done!

**If you need this pattern to fit a larger size, simply increase by 5 stitches in your chain for row 1. For a 0-3 month crown you will chain 37, etc.

  6. such a cute pattern. I don't have any babies in my family but I was thinking of making these for bracelets for my cousins. We all get together once a month and it's called the Leverett DIVA's and this would be perfect. Do you think they would be easy to scale down to go on a wrist?

  9. Soi am having a little trouble with the pattern, I followed the instructions but it only gives you one point of the crown and not multiples like the picture. Am I missing instructions somewhere?

  10. Hi, I have the same problem as above.

  11. I think we are missing a repeat on row 4. Otherwise, this is super cute!

  14. Very cute. I just made one using Red Heart worsted weight yarn and an H hook, and ch 38 in the beginning, and it was even too small for my daughters water baby so there is no way it would fit a 0-3 month. It would probably fit a preemie. Luckily, it's an easy pattern to follow for increasing to a larger size. Thank you for sharing. :)

    1. Thank You! I'm new at crocheting and this was driving me crazy!

    2. Have you measured it on your newborns head? Just curious as most headband patterns for newborns say to do 13 inches and chaining 53 makes it 11 inches. I know head sizes will vary slightly, and my granddaughter is not expected for another month so I can't measure precisely. Just wondering what your experience was. OH, and I am using a cotton thread, what type of thread did you use Jennifer? Wondering about stretching.

  20. Love this pattern -- thank you! But I also noticed the pattern only called for one point; photos had more. I can repeat the pattern, but what stitches go between the points?

    ReplyDelete
  21. I just made one using 37ch and repeated the point pattern to the end. Still think its a bit small, going to try again and add another 5ch.
