Crochet Mini Crown Pattern FREE

I’ve made this pattern FREE for you, and I hope you enjoy. It’s an easy fun pattern and great for decoration or small dolls.


I hope you love my newest simple hardened crochet pattern: Mini Crown.

It is a fun way to learn and experiment with hardened crochet using nylon cord/twine. I know stiffening delicate crochet has been around awhile, but I tried it using sturdier cord/thread and modern products and it’s addicting!

I love how I can paint the hardened crochet too with metallic and glittery paints.

Materials needed to complete project:
1 spool of #24 Nylon crochet thread (1.85 to 2.0 mm cord/thread), Size F or G crochet Hook, large yarn needle, acrylic paint of your choice , Mod Podge sealant, and Delta Ceramcoat prep/sealer (optional), paint brush.

TIP: You can use #24 Nylon Seine Twine or #24 Nylon twisted Mason line found at many hardware stores, ebay, amazon, or other twine/cord shops online (such as net shops) Just make sure it’s not tarred. You can also use #21 Nylon Seine twine/nylon cord for a slightly smaller result.


This pattern is written to be used with #24 Nylon Crochet Thread; it is a hardened crochet project.
However, you can choose to substitute materials; the results will vary and the choice is up to you.

You should have medium level crochet skills and knowledge.

Finished mini crown is about 3 inches high, and 4 inches in diameter across top, 9 inch circumference at base (see photos).
Instructions to make a larger version is in the pattern; easy adjustments. Larger size is about 5 inch diameter and 10 inch circumference at base.

Primitive  Witch Hat Pattern with Stars

Witch Hat Pattern

I know it’s July and most aren’t likely ready to even think about the fall season, but now is the time to start planning and creating your fall crafts!

Each year I always think, “Soon. I’ll start creating fall items for my Etsy shop SOON.” Yet, each year I fins myself late to the game and totally unprepared to list any fall themed items in my shop. If this is you too, then let’s start the planning and creating process now.

The fall season is a time when sales for the upcoming holiday season starts ramping up. I find that most of my years sales for my crochet patterns and projects occur from early September to late November.
Let’s not underestimate the retail power of Halloween! People love this kitschy holiday and for retailers and crafters, it’s a goldmine of opportunity. July is the perfect time to start your planning and creating process.
Start by answering these questions:
  • What will you create?
  • What new patterns or templates are available for your craft?
  • What materials will you need to create X number of these items?
  • How many of each item do you want to create or need to create to offer to your customers?

All of these questions answered will give you a head start in the prep for the fall and holiday season.

Take a look at my Witch Hat Crochet Pattern: link below.

Please check back soon for the newest revised version that will offer tips and methods for hardening the witch hat for a more refined and stable hat!

So get your planning on and start crafting for fall NOW! This will put you in a nice spot and prepared for the ramping up for the upcoming fall and holiday seasons.

I designed this crochet pattern of a primitive style witch hat: you can make in 4 different sizes. The completed hat can also be used as part of a Halloween display for your Fall/Halloween decor.

I have provided the pattern for free: click link below
