Crochet Newborn Crown (a free Pattern)

free beginner crochet newborn crown pattern

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. :)

    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.

    4. Thank you, ladies!

      I sl st over about 15-16 stitches before I started the written row 4, so my seam wasn't right there on the side. Then, sl st to the end after the three points to keep it even. Turned out nice!

      Delete
    5. So do you ( hdc, DC treble ch 2 treble, dc, hdc ) repeat all the way across row 4?

    6. I did a little research online so I thought I would share. This pattern (chains) turns out a very small band. The average circumference at birth is 14". For 3 mos, add another 1-1/2" to 2". Hope this helps! It did for me. I'm also going to tweak this pattern for my dog!

      Delete
  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.

  22. Love the pictures, but the pattern is not matching up. Does anyone have an updated pattern? Thank you!

    1. I chained 56 (H hook, worsted weight yarn) and then followed the pattern for the first 3 rounds. On the 4th round, I did what is called for above, then 3 sc, then repeat to the end. I don't have my baby yet to check the size, but I used one of my daughter's dolls with a 13 inch head circumference to try to get the right size. Hope this helps! (I'm a pretty tight crocheter, just FYI.)

    2. Yes it did because I went by the directions then tried it on doll and the first one didn't fit but chasined more and it fit

    1. Thanks! I contacted the Designer on Facebook, she got locked out of this site and can't edit the pattern. I appreciate you posting what you did because I like others had 1 peak! :(

      Delete
  27. I did a little more separation between points by doing a sc, sl st, sc between the hdc sts
    I will also start with a longer chain bc this pattern is not the right size for 0-3 months even using an H hook.
    I wanted to share this pattern but with it being incomplete I didn't. It did give me a starting point though, so thank you for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Yep I only got one peak. I'm gonna try and follow some of the previous edits. I can't read patterns well and don't know how to adjust to make the 3 peaks as in the picture

  31. UPDATE! I private messaged Jessica on Facebook and she said Row 4 should read like this:
    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.*, Repeat from * to * and then at the end of the row 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.

    Just a side note: My own personal preference I did Chain 36 for Newborn and Chain 42 for 0 to 3 months size. I also repeated Row 3 to give it more in the depth. God bless!

    2. Okay so I made this today. I chained 43 and it was really small. It would not fit 0-3 mths. Maybe a preemie. It's a really easy pattern though so I'm going to try and make a video on it soon.

  37. This pattern seems to be incomplete. I only get one peak on the crown before it says to bind off. Also, When you start with chain 33 and begin the first stitch on the second chain from hook I end up with 32 stitches not 31 stitches. What am I doing wrong? Love this little pattern and really want to make it. Are there any plans to update the pattern?
