This little crown is the perfect project for last minute gifts, fancy dress outfits, or just to knit for fun in between projects. Gauge isn’t crucial; with a fine yarn and small needles you can make a delicate circlet, use thicker yarn and bigger needles for a more robust, stately piece. The desirable fabric should be firm but flexible. The circlet is designed to fit the head sizes listed above with 2 - 3 inches of negative ease.
