Crochet Pattern - Jubilee Crown
I wanted to crochet some Crowns for our Jubilee celebrations this weekend and I found some lovely crown patterns online but after making a few up they just didn't match what I had in my head. I didn't just want crowns I wanted a crown that reminded me of HRH Queen Elizabeth II...
...After chancing on the perfect yarn, James C Brett Twinkle Fashion DK, I started playing around until I came up with a Jubilee Crown I was happy with. I've written out the pattern below if you'd like to try. I'm hoping to crochet a few of these for our friends and family so we can all be Queen for a day!
And lastly K wanted one of her in front of her new bedroom shelves which she had happily spent the afternoon organising!
