Free Crochet Crown Pattern- The perfect beginner-friendly crochet pattern for all the little princes and princesses in your life.
Hello, crazy yarn addict! And thanks for stopping by my little corner of the internet. How are you hanging in there with all this quarantine craziness?
I have a fun new crochet pattern to help you pass the time!
I designed this crown for myself to wear on my birthday (I turned 30 this year 😱) and thought it would be the perfect addition to making quarantine birthdays extra special!
It doesn’t even have to be for your birthday though, maybe you just make one for you and dub yourself QUARANTINE QUEEN 👑.

Single Crochet Decrease: Insert your hook into first stitch, grab yarn and pull up a loop. Insert hook into next stitch. Grab yarn and pull up loop. Yarn over, pull through all three loops.
Back Bump: This is where you flip your starting chain over and insert your hook into the “back bump” of the chain and place your stitch there. If you are unfamiliar with this technique I would suggest watching the video that goes with this pattern.
Before you start
This pattern is made in ONE PIECE. Which means you only have 2 tails to sew in HOLLER!
Crochet Crown Pattern
Using your G hook and Mighty Stitch yarn, chain 32
Row 1: Starting in the second chain from hook, sc 31 in the back bump. CH 1, turn. (31)
Row 2: DEC, SC 27, DEC. CH 1, turn (29)
Row 3. DEC, SC 25, DEC. CH 1, turn (27)
Row 4. DEC, SC 23, DEC. CH 1, turn (25)
Row 5. DEC, SC 21, DEC. CH 1, turn (23)
Row 6. DEC, SC 19, DEC. CH 1, turn (21)
Row 7. INC, SC 19, INC. CH 1, turn (23)
Row 8. INC, SC 21, INC. CH 1, turn (25)
Row 9. INC, SC 24, INC. CH 1, turn (27)
Row 10. INC, SC 25, INC. CH 1, turn (29)
Row 11. INC, SC 27, INC. CH 1, turn (31)
Repeat rows 2-11 a total of 9 times giving you a total of 99 rows.
To make a CHILD SIZE repeat rows 2-11 8 times. To make a TODDLER SIZE (I haven’t tried this yet but theoretically this should work) repeat rows 2-11 7 times.
You will leave off the very last “row 11” repeat.
Row 99. INC, SC 27, INC. CH 1, turn (29)
Now we are going to close our crown up to make a circle. We will do this by joining row 1 with row 99.
I do this using the Join As You Go method. If this is confusing jump to the 12:30 minute mark in the video that goes with this post and you’ll go right to the JAYG directions.
After you finish row 99, CH 1 and turn your work.
Insert your hook into the first stitch in row 1.
Place a SC.
Pull up a loop and remove your hook out of the working yarn.
Insert your hook into the first stitch in row 99.
Grab the working yarn loop and pull through.
Insert your hook into the second stitch in row 1 and place a SC.
Pull up a loop and remove your hook from the working yarn. Insert your hook back into stitch 1 of row 99 and pull the working yarn loop through.
We put two stitches into the first stitch of row 99 because 99 has 29 stitches and 1 has 31. We will also put two stitches in the last stitch of row 99.
Continue to close your crown with the JAYG method.
Remember the last two stitches in row 1 will get joined into the last stitch of row 99.
Fold the crown in half, like you are creating a cuff.
Tip: I like to hide my tail in between the two panels of the crown, this way I only have ONE tail to tie in at the end.
Begin to SC the two sides of the crown together, matching up the beginning and end of each row.
When you get to each of the crown’s tips (or points), place 3 SC together.
You will be working on the “raw side” of your work so you will have to make your own spots for your hook to go.
As long as you keep adjusting the crown so the tips are lining up with each other and the rows are lining up your finished piece will be perfect.
After you SC all the way around your crown, tie off and sew in your tail.
Adjust all the crown tips with your fingers by tugging on the SC row and making it lay flat.
TADA!! You can now crown yourself Quarantine Queen…. go head mama you deserve it 😏
