As soon as we saw this cute design, we knew that many loom knitters would be interested in trying it out. Carrie Johnson has been kind enough to allow us to share her pattern in blog. We hope you enjoy it. A little bit about Carrie:  Carrie is a single mom of four children, ranging in ages of 5-20 yrs old! She lives on a small goat farm out in California. She has been loom knitting for about 3 years and just began to learn to read patterns. She recently started writing down all of her designs, and she has four published patterns so far and more to come! Contact Carrie.

Knitting loom: KB adjustable hat loom
Yarn: approx 30-40 yds of worsted weight yarn.
Notions: knitting tool, tapestry needle, stitch markers,
Other: Stick on jewels to decorate or other decor of choice.

Abbreviations

K: Knit (e-wrap)
P=Purl

Pattern note:  I used two strands of yarn, since the yarn I used was thin. If using a #3 weight yarn, you might want
to double your strands. A #4 yarn you might use one strand, two strands can be use for a thicker crown. One
strand of #5 can be used as well, even though I haven’t made the crown in bulky yet, it should still work!

INSTRUCTIONS

Set up: Set your loom in the extra small configuration- using 2 connectors and 2 round parts. Place pegs in every
hole.

Using your stitch markers divide pegs into 8 sections with 7 pegs in each section.
Ex: pegs 1-7 is one section, pegs 8-14 is another section and so on…

Cast on 56 stitches, join to work in the round.
Rnds 1, 3, 5, 7: k to the end.
Rnds: 2, 4, 6, 8: p to the end.

Points for the Crown
~Each section is worked separately, in rows.

Starting with the first section pegs 1-7:

*Row 1: k to end of section

Row 2: p to end of section*

Decrease as follows: Move loop from peg 1 to peg 2 and loop from peg 7 to peg 6.

Repeat from * to *.  (Pegs that have two loops on them, treat both loops as one loop.)

Next: Decrease as follows: move loop from peg 2 to peg 3 and loop from peg 6 to peg 5.

Repeat from * to *.  (Pegs that have two loops on them, treat both loops as one loop.)

Next: Decrease as follows: move loop from peg 3 to peg 4 and loop from peg 5 to peg 4.

Next: Knit peg 4. Purl peg 4.

Cut yarn leaving a 6 inch tail:  knit peg and pull yarn tail through.
One point done.

To start next point, make a slip knot and add yarn to peg 8 (you’ll now be working on pegs 8-14) and repeat
Points for the Crown section. Repeat with each section. 8 points completed at the end of project.
Weave in yarn ends.
Decorate
Enjoy!

  • Carrie,
    Very cute! I don’t have a young lady to work one for, but if I did, she would be the proud owner of your very clever crown. Can’t wait to see more of your work very ice indeed!!

  • Cute as can be, Carrie! My little girlie said I need to get her one so she can wear it on her head and pretend to be Princess Peach 🙂

  • Thank you so much for sharing this adorable crown. I will be making a one for my granddaughter, plus several for friends granddaughters. They are all Princesses. 🙂

  • Thanks for letting me know. We have corrected it. Row 13 should say Row 12, row 14, row 13, etc.
