Crocheted Tiara

                                                                My sweet baby girl = )

 Sugar'n Cream yarn calls for a 5.00 mm hook.  I used a 3.25 mm hook because I wanted the stitches tight.

Here are the written instructions.  A picture tutorial follows.

 Chain as many as you need for the tiara to fit the head it's intended for.  Join with a slip stitch to make a circle, chain one, then single crochet in the top loop only of the chain.

                                                            Join with a slip stitch.

                                                               Chain one, then turn.

                  This is what I call the pot holder stitch.. = )  Put the hook in the back loop of the stitch then
                      through the un-worked bottom loop from the chain..  Draw the yarn through for single

                                                         Here are about 3 stitches worked.

                                 When the row is complete, slip stitch where the arrow is pointing.

                                                                  Chain one and turn.

           Do this row mostly like the last one except put the hook through both loops on the top and then
                              through the un-worked loop from row 1.  This joins both rows together.

                                                                   Slip stitch here.

                                                  Continue slip stitching around for a bit...

                         Fold the tiara in half (with the row start/stop as the back fold) and count 18 stitches
                                      from the center front and mark it with a pin or something.
                                                           It doesn't need to be exact...

       When you get to your stitch marker, start working stitch pattern.  Here is the first bobble done.

                     Work the pattern to this point.. it is the (sc, ch 3, sc) just past the 7 treble crochets.

                                                                          Chain one.

                                                  Turn.  Single crochet in the chain 3 space.

                                      Chain 6 then single crochet in the top (4th) treble crochet.

                                               Chain 4 then single crochet in the same stitch.

                                             Chain 6, then single crochet in the chain 3 space.

slip stitch in the single crochet.


                                   Single crochet in the single crochet that is in the chain 3 space.

                                3 Single crochet, chain 3 picot, 3 single crochet in the chain 6 space.

             Work the stitches over to this point.  (single crochet in the single crochet that is in the chain 3 space)

                 Chain 1  then single crochet down in the same stitch as the single crochet that is the left side
                                                                of the chain 3 space...

                                      Slip stitch around to the end of the row and weave in ends.

                            Hopefully the diagram and the pictures will help this all make sense..
