I just borrowed a book from the library called Alterknits by Leigh Radford, its a fairly recent book published last year. There is a pattern for a crown knitted with crepe paper, looks really funky and I thought it would be great to make these for Christmas instead of those boring crowns that come out of the bon bon cracker things.

Anyway I was wondering if anyone had made this before, how easy is it to stop the paper tearing? and does the colour bleed onto your head when you wear it? I don't think the family would be too happy if they walked away with green and red heads LMAO

knit ya'll

I was just looking at that same pattern yesterday! I am going to make it for my daughter for one of her bridal showers and for her bridesmaids. I'll let you know if their hair turns colors!
