A Princess crown with a long plait of hair, for lots of imaginative play
A variation of the classic feather and fan pattern makes this pretty princess crown.
The hair is knotted in place through the edge then twisted and plaited, so it will stay in place through lots of games!

The art of Knitting ,Winter Warmers
Yarn with a metallic silver fleck gives this crown extra sparkle!
I enjoyed researching designs for this project, I wanted a pattern an intermediate or advanced knitter would feel they could try.
This pattern uses increases, decreases and yarn over stitches, I think this makes it a great project for a some one who wants to tackle a slightly more challenging pattern.
The crown is seamed at the back so the size can be adjusted to fit by overlapping the ends. The crown is made firmer by spraying with hair lacquer, you could use spray starch if you prefer.
Any colour would look great - How about golden yellow for a Queen
