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 thicker 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 with 1 Increase each Round

The cone with only 1 increase each round is 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.

The 1-increase-cone is crocheted in Wine Red in spiral rounds with single crochet 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.

Cone with 5 Increases each Round

The 5-increase-cone is the widest possible cone when working with a magic ring of 6 single crochet stitches.

This is because if 6 single crochet stitches are increased per round with a magic ring with initially 6 single crochet stitches, we get a flat circle or hexagon, depending on the distribution of the increases.

Even with 5 increases per round, there is a small unevenness in the distribution when you work with a magic ring consisting of 6 stitches. The following instructions will still produce a very even looking cone.

The 5-increase-cone is crocheted in Golf Green in spiral rounds with single crochet stitches.

  • Crochet the cone in spiral rounds in Golf Green.
  • Round 1: 6 sc into Magic Ring (6 stitches).
  • Round 2: 5 increases, 1 sc (11 stitches).
