How about we start this year with a tiny, easy pattern? In France and some other countries, we celebrate the epiphany by eating the “Kings’ cake” in which there is a hidden bean. The one who runs into the bean while eating the cake becomes the king or the queen of the day and gets to wear a paper crown all day long. That’s where I got the inspiration to make this tiny crochet crown, but it would be the perfect size for a lot of your amigurumis too (and for you too of course, see how NOT ridiculous at all it is at the end of this article… :p)
Skill level: Beginner. You’ll need to know how to make a chain, a single crochet and a double crochet, that’s it !
Approx. size: 2 inches
Material: Cotton yarn (ie : Scheepjes Catona) with a 2.5mm hook (C) and a tapestry needle
Abreviations (US terms):
ch : chain
sc : single crochet
st : stitch
dc : double crochet
R1 : ch31, sc1 in the 2nd ch from hook and in the next 29 st (30). Ch1, turn
R2 : sc in each st (30). Turn without chaining.
R3 : (Skip 2 st, dc4 in next st, ch3, dc4 in same st as the previous ones, skip 2st, sc1 in next st). Repeat 5 times.
Fasten of leaving a long tail for sewing and sew both sides together. Weave in the ends.
And, you’re done !
You didn’t need this to be a beautiful queen (or king !) but you have to admit this looks so freakin’ good ! :D
That being said, I wish you a wonderful 2022, full of joy, Love, and crochet of course ! :)
See you soon !

Perfeect for our Queen’s Jubilee next month, thank you. x
omg! I been making worry worms and pocket hug bunnies as well as mini octopuses, and I thought to myself: It’d be awesome if I could add a crown!! So I went searching and *boom* I found your pattern! THANK YOU!!!!
Thank you for this pattern! When a friend asked for a mini crown and no one else had it for free, I panicked!! Appreciate it so very much! So simple too.
This is super cute! My German shepherd is turning 1 yr in a couple days. I didn’t have the money to spoil her with an elaborate birthday party, so I decided I’d make her a crown to wear for the day. This will be perfect! Can’t wait to make it! Thank you for sharing your pattern!
Thank you for all the wonderful patterns they’re beautiful
Dank je wel voor de patronen. Mijn kleindochter is verliefd op de unicorn. elk vriendinnetje van haar, krijgt een unicorn. ;-)
Such a cute design! The “last minute Queen” is also very accurate hahaha. Tomorrow its kingsday in the Netherlands, so I rapidly made this crown for my rabbit lol. Curious if she can wear it as well as you :p
