This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download

The crown is worked in a six-stitch repeat and therefore can be made in any size.
Simply measure the circumference of the head and then make enough foundationless half treble crochets based on a multiple of six. Count how many repeats you have and times the number of repeats by three to determine how many beads you will need.

Be aware that the cotton does stretch slightly, so rather make the foundation row slightly shorter than longer, i.e. if you need three more stitches to reach the length of the circumference rather remove the three extra stitches, instead of adding another three.

This pattern is worked with two strands of yarn held simultaneously but since the pattern does not use more than one ball of yarn (unless you are planning on making a gigantic crown).
It is recommended to divide the ball of yarn in two. It is not advisable to centre-pull the yarn, as knots could occur.
