Crown Jewels

A quirky and whimsical crown for the dress up box, no child’s toy box will be complete without the Crown Jewels. This crown is worked flat in garter stitch, and then the edges are folded over and crocheted together to create the correct shape. The points of the crown are made with simple increases, decreases, cast ons and bind offs. To keep its sturdy (and royal) look, the crown is lightly stuffed with poly-fil so it will never droop. Buttoned jewels help to finish the royal look.
