Fairy-tale princesses almost always have long and flowing hair. This flower circlet celebrates your own lovely locks. Join cast-on and bind-off to make a precious coronet, or leave the ends free to plait into a long braid. A longer length makes a sweet necklace. These flowers take advantage of a picot cast-on technique that allows a large number of petals to be made quickly without cutting the yarn and rejoining after each petal.

NOTES

  • For the circlet, work the stem until it is long enough to fit comfortably and securely around your head; for the braid, work the stem until it is about the same length as the portion of your hair you wish to braid.
  • On the samples shown, flowers are placed just over 2” apart. Depending on the length of the stem and how far apart you choose to place the flowers, you may wish to make more or fewer flowers than directed.
