a crown much loved by my kids, finally in pattern form.

they love to wear these rightside out, inside out, upside down, upside down pulled low over their noses … you get the picture. i love to watch their minds at work as they continue to make up new pretend play scenarios that these are props for.

requires less than a skein each of 2 leftover shades of nature cotton. the bobbles & the inside could be knit in different colors to use up even more of smaller scrap pieces.

due to the intense stretch of the araucania yarn, this fits both my 2 year old and my 9 year old well. this same pattern knit in a worsted weight yarn (see my project ‘loved II’) will fit 6 to 18 month olds. also super cute on stuffed animals.

the points can be stuffed before you seam them up at the ends for added fun. this idea courtesy of test knitter moilulu. thanks!

any questions, feel free to contact my through ravelry or at knit in peace.

Knit Picks added this pattern to their IDP program in Januray 2010. You can see it knit up in Knit Picks Comfy Bulky here.
