I was making the cute little froggie from Sarah Gasson The Knitables Collection for my sweetie (with fingering weight yarn so he would be a wee little froggie). However, when he was finished I decided that as he was being made for my own Prince Charming the froggie needed a wee little crown for his wee little head.
Here are the directions for making your own Wee Little Crown:
You may use any size yarn for this project. As my froggie was made with fingering weight I made the crown with fingering weight as well (a lovely golden shade from Shameless Twist).
Use a needle size to match your yarn (I used US 2 - 2.75mm)
The amount of stitches you cast on will depend on how large you want the crown to be. I would try a few rows in different sizes and see which works best for the doll or animal you are making the crown for. Whatever size you choose you should cast on an ODD number of stitches (I cast on 15 stitches). Cast on loosely.
Rows 1 and 3: Knit
Rows 2 and 4: Purl
Row 5: K1, *YO, K2tog, *repeat to end
Rows 6 and 8: Purl
Rows 7 and 9: Knit
Cast off loosely leaving a long tail.
Fold the crown over so that cast-on and cast-off edges match up (knit sides showing) and press flat.
Use the yarn tail to sew the two halves of the crown together, along the cast-on and cast-off edges.
Curve the crown into a circular shape and seam up the backside.
Trim ends or use the remaining yarn to sew the crown to the head.
