String of Flowers Circlet Knitting Pattern Download
Make yourself beautiful flowers for your hair. Join cast-on and bind-off to make a precious coronet, or leave the ends free to plait into a long braid. Take advantage of a picost cast-on-technique that allows a large number of petals to be made quickly without cutting the yarn and rejoining after each petal.Adjust the length for longer or shorter hair-or a longer length would be a wonderful necklace.
