Crown: 

The first row of the crown is a foundation double crochet stitch.  I like using the foundation double crochet stitch because you don’t get the tightness of the starting chain.  I want the crown to have some stretch to it!  When I was learning the foundation double crochet stitch I watched this video on YouTube!  If the foundation double crochet stitch isn’t something you’re interested in learning you have a couple of options:

  1. You can use a size up in hook for your starting chain.  In this case you would need to use a size J hook.
  2. You can crochet with your I hook but crochet loosely so your chain doesn’t end up being too tight.

Now, on to the pattern:

Row 1: Ch 3 followed by 62 foundation dc stitches. Sl st in first fdc. At this point I like to take the tail of the starting ch 3 and sew it to the end to get rid of the gap!
