Simple Birthday Crown

SONY DSC

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.

    • I just made one up to fit my head really quickly and used 78 stitches. I will say that our noggins tend to run a little on the large side in this house, so you may want to adjust your hook size accordingly. The gauge I used is 4 inches = 13 stitches and 7 rows in dc. The pattern stitch is in multiples of 13 in case you need to make any more adjustments. I hope this helps!
