A knitted princess

7.09.2006

I haven't knit anything in a while and had been wanting to start a new project. I had a gift card to Kool Knits that I needed to redeem. The idea behind the gift card (from Dan for christmas) was me going to the yarn store on my own. I had to bring the girls and it was on a day that Maddie spiked a fever. So I ran through the shop and picked up the Summer 2006 Interweave Magazine and a nice pair of new size 4 dpns. I wanted to get yarn for this little project from Magknits but couldn't remember what I needed. (honey, I am taking a raincheck on the day out at yarn store sans children). So, there was this cute little free pattern in the mag
Just what every little girl needs.....


A Knitted Crown

(I've been wanting to try something other than hats to knit.... do you think this counts?)

I used some thrifted yarn and Annie picked and placed all the embellishments. It was an easy pattern and got to practice my increases and had to cast off with a crochet stictch, egads! I have visions of knitted knights in my future.

Other knitted crowns can be found in AlterKnits, The Natural Baby Village, Little Turtle Knits (scroll down)

Here is a crochet crown pattern.
