This is my first crochet pattern, so feedback is welcome, though admittedly, there isn't much to this one. I had made the Obama finger puppet from a Lion brand pattern, and when I saw that he won the American election last night (Nov. 4th, 2008), I thought I should make him a crown to celebrate his victory. I couldn't find a pattern for a mini crown online, so I made my own! Enjoy!

Materials List

Small amount of yellow worsted weight yarn (I used Stylecraft Special Double Knit in Sunshine.)
Size E-4 (3.50 mm) crochet hook

Tapestry needle

Finished Size

Approximately 2.5 inches (6.35 cm) in diameter, or the perfect size to fit around your Obama finger puppet's head!


Gauge isn't particularly important for this project.

The Pattern

Ch 30, join with sl st to form a ring, making sure not to twist chain

Rnd1: Ch1, Sc in each ch around and join with a sl st (29 sc)

Rnd2: Ch1, Sc in each st around and join with a sl st

Rnd3: Ch1, *Sc in first st, skip 1 st, 3 dc in next sc, ch3 and sc in top of last dc, 3 dc in same sc, skip 1 st, rep from * until you have 7 points. Join and fasten off.

Sew in loose ends.

Thank you! We too made the Obama finger puppet. We are so excited to have an incoming government that cares about Americans and other humans, and maybe even the planet we live on!

A crown for Obama...while the crown itself is neat, I'm sad anyone felt the need to commemorate the likes of that man.

Crown???   The man was elected President of the United States....we do not have kings here in this country..   I am sorry something like this is on this web-site.

Change?  Let's certainly hope so in 2012......
