A bit ago my daughter Isabel told me that her white plush seal absolutely needs a crown, because, when you come to think of it,- Isabel said - , the seal is not a simple seal but actually a royal seal.
So Isabel asked me to crochet a crown for her plush seal and, as a matter of course, I did what she asked me for. We chose turquoise yarn because it suits the seal best. It fits perfectly with her eyes. Doesn´t it ?
For all those, who have daughters with royal plushies in desperate need of a crown ;), here´s the pattern :
You will need :
crochethook 1,25mm + wool needle
100 % cotton yarn Cotone Lana Grossa in a colour of your choice
silver metallic yarn
ch(s) = chain(s)
sc(s) = single crochet
st(s) = stitch(es)
dec. = decrease
slst(s) = slip stitch(es)
rnd(s) = round (s)
tog. = together
Round 1: make a ring of 28 chs and close it (28)
Round 2: 1 sc in each stitch around (28)
Round 3-5: 1 sc in each stitch around (28)
Make a round of 28 slsts with silver metallic yarn, fasten off
Turn the crown and start to work the crown prongs on the opposite side
First crown prong:
Row 1: insert hook in any stitch on the opposite side and make 5 scs (5)
Row 2: 1 sc in each stitch (5)
Row 3: 1 sc in each stitch (5)
Row 4: dec. 2 scs: make 1 sc in first two sts of row 3 tog , make 1 sc in next st, make 1 sc in last two sts of row 3 tog (3)

Row 8: dec. 1 sc: make 1 sc in both sts of row 7 tog (1)
Second crown prong:Row 1 : insert hook in the same stich like the 5ths sc of the first crown prong and make 5 scs (5) Work the second crown prong in the same way like the first.
Work five other crown prongs I the same way.
Pay attention to the fact that the first and the fifths sc of the first row of each crown prong is sharing the stich with the prong next to it.
Make a round of slsts with silver metallic yarn around the 7 crown prongs, fasten off
I hope you will have much joy crocheting this little crown and let me please know what do you all think about it.
