Finished Size:

Finished size is about 11.5” tall. Size varies based on yarn, crochet hook, and how tightly you crochet.

Special Stitch Instructions:

Most pieces begin with a “ring.” Use any type of ring you are comfortable with (i.e. Magic Circle, chain 2 and single crochet in second chain, etc.). You’ll be working in one continuous spiral, unless otherwise noted. You’ll be using the 4.5mm G Hook for everything unless stated otherwise.

The use of a marker is very helpful if you’re not used to working in continuous rounds. It’s also great if you have to stop midway.

There are a lot of small pieces that are tied together for this pattern. I’ve attempted to show as many pictures as I can, but if you’re unsure please check the video. The crown in particular will have many pick up stitches and pieces.
