"Princess Crown"

Beloved Woman

Introduction

A Fabulously Decorative “Crown” for your next Gala or Holiday Party! This beautiful hat works up wonderfully in any of the regular and/or metallic crochet threads, however you must use at least four balls in order to get the 4 ply thickness that will enable you to shape it. You can also use any of the 4 ply wools, (I love Red Heart brand for its shapability). Is that a word–LOL! I put each ball in separate bags to resist tangling—however a spool holder will work much better:) As a Born-Again Believer, I give all the Glory to God for His creative abilities in me; therefore I take no credit for this is His original design. I trust that you will enjoy crocheting this unique pattern as much as I did! And just think–how exciting it will be at your next glamorous gala or holiday party to walk into the room–and turn heads! I see it already in these rich metallic’s: silver, red, bronze, and gold with pretty organza ribbon! Please E-mail me if you experience any problems. indianprincess_777@yahoo.com.

Materials List

For this “Princess Crown” I used two balls of

regular mint green and two balls of gold matallic crochet thread.

You can use the colors of your choice.

Size J/10 6mm hook

Finished Size

Fits most size 22 inch heads snugly, however you may wish to stretch it a bit to fit more loosly by misting it with water–not too much–and gently hand shape. You may also use a larger sized needle for a 23 inch fit.

Gauge

Gauge is not imperative to this pattern, however, careful shaping is the most valuable thing to consider. If you crochet tightly, you may consider using a larger hook.

Notes

Mist the design lightly with water and twist the larger shells in an oblique. Gently pull the shells just above them into a peak in order to give it an appealing visual effect. The very top of the crown is to lay flatly on the head, gently stretch it into shape to lay flat.
