Free Pattern: Crown appliques

In almost one month it’s Koningsdag (King’s Day) in the Netherlands. On Koningsdag, we celebrate the birth of our king by selling all our old junk and eating and drinking on the streets.

Not my picture, but you get the idea!

Every year, you can sell stuff on the streets, so this year I decided to make some cute crown brooches. I’m doing this by making crown appliques, strengthen them with spray starch and sewing a pin to the back.

So now for the patterns… I used 100% cotton yarn, a little golden thread and a little silver thread all at the same time to give these crowns some extra shimmer :). My bought my metallic thread at the Action some time ago, but you can buy it at many different places.

For the fancy and simple crowns, I used around 3 meters (10 feet) of yarn.

I ended this crown by doing a little slst on the side of the crown.

And for the last crowns I used this pattern (which uses UK terms), but I changed two things:
– I skipped row 4
– With row 5, I did the htr in the 3rd, 5th, 7th and last stitch (instead of in the loops created in row 4)
