follow us on Facebook you will know that I started learning the art of crochet over the holidays. I am trying some basic stuff, and am having so much fun with it! I was picking up some yarn and Miss Ava spotted this little ball of sparkly red yarn, and was requesting I make her a crown with it!
So we hunted online for a crown that I was "hoping" I could crochet for her, and founds tons! I was so exited. This is such a sweet little addition to her dress up collection of goodies.
I have done a few different stitches now, and with minimal mistakes was able to make this crown for her 💓
I followed the basic tutorial, but added a second shell stitch to each point attaching it with chains of three down to the corners of each of the bottoms shells. This made the points much taller. I am not sure I would use this yarn again (for this) because it really soft and fine. I think a heavier yarn would stand up more, but Ava LOVED this yarn!!
This is the basic crown with one shell for each point, and below you can see I have added the second.
This was so fast and fun to make!!! Many times when doing tutorials I find "other tutorials" on basic stitches so that I can go back and complete the tutorial, because sometimes they assume you already know the stitches. I love the way this turned out, she also had a fantastic little tiara to make as well!!
