Magic Yarn Project

Monday, January 16, 2017

The Magic Yarn Project is a wonderful program that creates comfortable and whimsical head coverings for children battling cancer. These tiara's are for their Disney princess wigs. The tiaras need to be about 8" in length and can't wrap around the head so I adapted and tweaked this Princess in Disguise pattern.

Here's the pattern for how I made them:

Supplies:
  • Yarn: Red Heart Super Saver (Turqua, Gold, Real Teal, Light Periwinkle, Medium Purple)
  • Hook: Size F
Abbreviations:
  • ch - chain
  • sl st - slip stitch
  • sc - single crochet
  • dc - double crochet
  • tr - treble crochet
  • st(s) - stitch(es)
Stitch explanations:
5dc cluster (worked in each of the 5 dc of row 1): Yo, insert hook in next st, yo, pull through st, yo, pull through 2 lps on hook, (yo, insert hook in next st, yo, pull through st, yo, pull through 2 lps on hook) 4 times, yo, pull through all 6 lps on hook, ch 1.

Picot: Ch 3, insert hook back into the center of the base st, yo, pull through st and loop on hook.

Large picot: Ch 5, insert hook back into the center of the base st, yo, pull through st and loop on hook.

Pattern:
Ch 40,
Row 1: 5 dc in 5th ch from hook (counts as ch2 + skip 2 sts), *skip 3 sts, 5 dc in next st,* repeat from *to* 8 times (for a total of 9 shells), skip 2 sts, dc in next st, turn.

Row 2: Ch 2, 5dc cluster (makes 1 diamond), *ch 5, 5dc cluster*, repeat from *to* 8 times (for a total of 9 diamonds), dc in top of ch 2 of previous row, turn.

Row 3:  Ch 1, (3 sc in next ch 5 space, picot, 3 sc in same ch 5 space) twice, 7 sc in next ch 5 space, (in next ch 5 space work 2 sc, 2 dc, 1 tr, 2 dc, 2 sc) twice, 3 sc in next ch 5 space, turn.

Row 4: Ch 6, sc in tr of previous row, ch 7, sc in next tr of previous row, ch 6, sl st in 3rd sc of 7 sc from previous row, turn.

Row 5: 4 sc in ch 6 space, picot, 4 sc in same ch 6, 4 sc in ch 7 space, large picot, 4 sc in same ch 7, 4 sc in next ch 6, picot, 4 sc in same ch 6, 4 sc in partial ch 5 from row 3, (3 sc in next ch 5, picot, 3 sc in same ch 5) twice, sl st in top of dc from row 2.

Fasten off. Weave in ends. Add bling!**

**You don't have to bling the tiara's. If you'd rather just crochet and send them, the Magic Yarn Project will add the bling.

Thank you for sharing it! I made up one of my own after scouring Ravelry.com for something free but I like yours much much MUCH better :)

I love it! This is my first crochet tiara. I'm making a Belle wig for the Magic crochet project. Thanks for the pattern.

I love this pattern! I was looking everywhere for a pattern to make tiaras for The Magic Yarn Project and there isn't much out there. Thank you!

Thank you for the pattern. I am having trouble with it. At the end of row 3 there are still 3 spaces in which to crochet. You do not address these. And when you say turn then chain 6 in row 4 it is not long enough to reach the first TR. Please help thanks

Hi Barbara! At the end of row 3 the work is turned before the row is finished in order to create the shaping of the tiara. Once you have turned the work, the ch 6 at the start of row 4 will be plenty to reach the last tr worked on row 3.

Hi! Thank you so much for the pattern! I'm working on a wig for the project right now, but to be honest I never learned how to read patterns. I was wondering if you happened to have ever made a video for this pattern? Thank you!

Hi A. Rose! I haven't made a video for the pattern but you have given me something to think about for a future project..
