My little guy is turning 3 at the end of the month so I made him a crown to wear. He put it on, so that his dad could take his picture, and promptly started yelling, “I like it! I like it!” We will see if he still likes it in a week when I drag it out for his birthday. After all, he is at that magical age where he loves something one minute and can’t stand it the next.
As always, this pattern has not been tested so if you notice any problems with it please let me know either in the comments section or at CrochetBot3000@gmail.com. You can also find me on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/Crochetbot3000.
