Wonder Woman Tiara

Here’s the pattern for the Wonder Woman tiara I knit last week. I knit one this week for a friend who is dressing up as Wonder Woman for a 5k and it only took me a few hours. So an expert knitter could probably bust this out in no time at all. I made this to fit my head, which was about 21ish inches around. You can modify the pattern pretty easily to accommodate smaller or larger noggins.

The finished product, modeled by the lovely Cracker Bear.

Needle Size 3 US 3.25mm

Cheapy McCheaperson Yarn, Red Heart Brand, Acrylic, Worsted Weight, Bright Yellow and a bit of Cherry Red for the star

Duplicate stitched star motif.

Cracker Bear’s head is a little smaller than mine, but here’s the back. On a person head it would be tied by the dangling bits of yarn.

P.S. This is a bonus post, come by tomorrow for my post about motherhood. Cause ya know, it’s Mother’s Day on Sunday… you should call your mom.
