The past few days have been filled with sketching up patterns to work up in the new year, planning colorways, mapping out kits and contemplating yarn clubs. As I was working up the new patterns, my thoughts drifted to my favorite designs of 2013. One in particular stuck out because of this time of year and the season, so I thought I would share it with you.
A few weeks ago, I knitted a crown for my oldest son. It's always fun to pull out crowns at Christmas or Birthdays, or just everyday creative play. I wanted to present the pattern here on the blog for free. I love how it looks in Variegated yarn but a few of my friends have made it in solids and its just as adorable. Here it is modeled by my girlfriend's beautiful daughter.
Needles: Size US2 16” circular
Yarn: Fingering weight of choice. you will need about 18g.
CO 120 sts onto size US2 16” circular
Join in round
K2P2 rib for 12 rounds
Round 13: knit all sts
Repeat 1&2 four times total.
1) *M1, K4, Slp 2tg, K1, pass 2 slp sts back over, k4, M1, K1*
Picot BO (CO 2, BO 4 *for fewer points on crown, BO 6)
Weave in your ends and make your little ones royal!
You have to block those picot point up! So, pin them or string them up in the blocking process.
Happy New Year everyone!
