How to Crochet Cones in Spiral Rounds

The crocheted cone has a lot of applications, especially for Amigurumis. Because of its easy way to adjust the cone in height and width the cone can be used as spikes and scales, hats and caps, arms and legs and many other elements and items. Using a bigger wool and/or crochet hook the cone is easily transformed into a hat or hood.

The following cone crochet pattern does not only show you how to crochet a cone but also demonstrate and visualize how cones behave with different increases.

Cone Crochet Pattern

Needed Techniques

  • Magic Ring
  • Single Crochet Stitch (SC)
  • Increase

Needed Materials and Tools

Use a yarn and color of your choice and a suitable crochet hook. The here depicted cone was crocheted in spiral rounds using the “Schachenmayr Catania” yarn and a 2.5 mm crochet hook.

IMPORTANT: This crochet pattern is crocheted in spiral rounds, means, you keep crocheting without joining rounds unless said otherwise. Always work a marker of any kind in the first stitch of each new round, to know when a round begins and/or ends.

Cone with 1 Increase each Round

The cone with only 1 increase each round ist the most narrow cone your are able to crochet. If you do not increase at all you will create a tube.

Remember: If you crochet as many stitches as in the previous round, you crochet a tube. As soon you start evenly increasing stitches each round you get again a cube shape.

Use the check boxes to mark your finished rounds, rows and steps.

  • You start making a Magic Ring using a yarn and color of your choice.
  • 1. Round: 6 SC into Magic Ring. (6 stitches)
  • 2. Round: 2 SC into next stitch, 5 SC. (7 stitches)
  • 3. Round: 2 SC into next stitch, 6 SC. (8 stitches)
  • 4. Round: 2 SC into next stitch, 7 SC. (9 stitches)
  • 5. Round: 2 SC into next stitch, 8 SC. (10 stitches)
  • 6. Round: 2 SC into next stitch, 9 SC. (11 stitches)
  • 7. Round: 2 SC into next stitch, 10 SC. (12 stitches)
  • 8. Round: 2 SC into next stitch, 11 SC. (13 stitches)
  • 9. Round: 2 SC into next stitch, 12 SC. (14 stitches)

Done is the most narrow cone possible. If you want a bigger/longer cone continue crocheting with 1 increase at the beginning of each.

Cone with 2 Increases each Round

The cone with 2 increases each round is already much wider as the cone with 1 increase. The more increases you do each round, the wider the cone will become.

  • You start making a Magic Ring using a yarn and color of your choice.
  • 1. Round: 6 SC into Magic Ring. (6 stitches)
  • 2. Round: [ 2 SC into next stitch, 2 SC. ] Repeat from [ to ] 2 times. (8 stitches)
  • 3. Round: [ 2 SC into next stitch, 3 SC. ] Repeat from [ to ] 2 times. (10 stitches)
  • 4. Round: [ 2 SC into next stitch, 4 SC. ] Repeat from [ to ] 2 times. (12 stitches)
  • 5. Round: [ 2 SC into next stitch, 5 SC. ] Repeat from [ to ] 2 times. (14 stitches)
  • 6. Round: [ 2 SC into next stitch, 6 SC. ] Repeat from [ to ] 2 times. (16 stitches)
  • 7. Round: [ 2 SC into next stitch, 7 SC. ] Repeat from [ to ] 2 times. (18 stitches)
  • 8. Round: [ 2 SC into next stitch, 8 SC. ] Repeat from [ to ] 2 times. (20 stitches)
  • 9. Round: [ 2 SC into next stitch, 9 SC. ] Repeat from [ to ] 2 times. (22 stitches)

Cone with 3 Increases each Round

Therefore the cone with 3 increases each round is again wider as the cone with 1 and 2 increases.

  • You start making a Magic Ring using a yarn and color of your choice.
  • 1. Round: 6 SC into Magic Ring. (6 stitches)
  • 2. Round: [ 2 SC into next stitch, 1 SC. ] Repeat from [ to ] 3 times. (9 stitches)
  • 3. Round: [ 2 SC into next stitch, 2 SC. ] Repeat from [ to ] 3 times. (12 stitches)
  • 4. Round: [ 2 SC into next stitch, 3 SC. ] Repeat from [ to ] 3 times. (15 stitches)
  • 5. Round: [ 2 SC into next stitch, 4 SC. ] Repeat from [ to ] 3 times. (18 stitches)
  • 6. Round: [ 2 SC into next stitch, 5 SC. ] Repeat from [ to ] 3 times. (21 stitches)
  • 7. Round: [ 2 SC into next stitch, 6 SC. ] Repeat from [ to ] 3 times. (24 stitches)
  • 8. Round: [ 2 SC into next stitch, 7 SC. ] Repeat from [ to ] 3 times. (27 stitches)
  • 9. Round: [ 2 SC into next stitch, 8 SC. ] Repeat from [ to ] 3 times. (30 stitches)

Cone with 4 Increases each Round

The 4 increases for this cone cannot spread evenely when you start with a Magic Ring and 6 stitches, that is why the increases are slighty odd spread. Still, with this pattern you are able to crochet an even looking cone with 4 increases.

  • You start making a Magic Ring using a yarn and color of your choice.
  • 1. Round: 6 SC into Magic Ring. (6 stitches)
  • 2. Round: [ 2 SC into each of the next 2 stitches, 1 SC. ] Repeat from [ to ] 2 times. (10 stitches)
  • 3. Round: [ 2 SC into next stitch, 2 SC. ] Repeat from [ to ] 3 times. 2 SC into next stitch. (14 stitches)
  • 4. Round: [ 2 SC into next stitch, 3 SC. ] Repeat from [ to ] 3 times. 2 SC into next stitch, 1 SC. (18 stitches)
  • 5. Round: [ 2 SC into next stitch, 4 SC. ] Repeat from [ to ] 3 times. 2 SC into next stitch, 2 SC. (22 stitches)
  • 6. Round: [ 2 SC into next stitch, 5 SC. ] Repeat from [ to ] 3 times. 2 SC into next stitch, 3 SC. (26 stitches)
  • 7. Round: [ 2 SC into next stitch, 6 SC. ] Repeat from [ to ] 3 times. 2 SC into next stitch, 4 SC. (30 stitches)
  • 8. Round: [ 2 SC into next stitch, 7 SC. ] Repeat from [ to ] 3 times. 2 SC into next stitch, 5 SC. (34 stitches)
  • 9. Round: [ 2 SC into next stitch, 8 SC. ] Repeat from [ to ] 3 times. 2 SC into next stitch, 6 SC. (38 stitches)

Cone with 5 Increases each Round

The crochet cone with 5 increases is the most wide cone possible you are able to crochet with a Magic Ring with 6 stitches. If you would crochet as many increases as you have stitches in the Magic Ring, you would crochet a flat piece. That is why 5 increases is the maximum for this cone to start with, since 6 increases would create a flat crochet piece.

The 5 increases for this cone cannot spread evenely when you start with a Magic Ring and 6 stitches, that is why the increases are slighty odd spread. Still, with this pattern you are able to crochet an even looking cone with 5 increases.

  • You start making a Magic Ring using a yarn and color of your choice.
  • 1. Round: 6 SC into Magic Ring. (6 stitches)
  • 2. Round: 2 SC into each of the next 5 stitches, 1 SC. (11 stitches)
  • 3. Round: [ 2 SC into next stitch, 1 SC. ] Repeat from [ to ] 5 times. 1 SC. (16 stitches)
  • 4. Round: [ 2 SC into next stitch, 2 SC. ] Repeat from [ to ] 5 times. 1 SC. (21 stitches)
  • 5. Round: [ 2 SC into next stitch, 3 SC. ] Repeat from [ to ] 5 times. 1 SC. (26 stitches)
  • 6. Round: [ 2 SC into next stitch, 4 SC. ] Repeat from [ to ] 5 times. 1 SC. (31 stitches)
  • 7. Round: [ 2 SC into next stitch, 5 SC. ] Repeat from [ to ] 5 times. 1 SC. (36 stitches)
  • 8. Round: [ 2 SC into next stitch, 6 SC. ] Repeat from [ to ] 5 times. 1 SC. (41 stitches)
  • 9. Round: [ 2 SC into next stitch, 7 SC. ] Repeat from [ to ] 5 times. 1 SC. (46 stitches)

Rules for Crocheting Cones

Understanding cones does not only help you crocheting cones but also gives you the understanding on how to manipulate all other elements crocheted in spiral rounds and let them become wider or narrower to create your own desired shapes and forms.

It does not matter if you start with a Magic Ring with 3 stitches, 6 stitches or 20 stitches. It is always the case that if you crochet as many stitches as in the previous round you crochet a tube, while you obtain a flat piece if you crochet as many increases as you have stitches in the Magic Ring.

That means, the more stitches you have in your Magic Ring the more gradations you have for your cones.

Examples: Starting with 6 stitches in your Magic Ring you can crochet a total of 5 different cones, the most narrow cone is done with 1 increase each round while the widest is crocheted with 5 increases each round.

If you would start with a Magic Ring with 20 stitches you have a total of 19 different cones. The most narrow cone is done with 1 increase each round while the widest is crocheted with 19 increases each round.
