cracker snap crowns / Dawn Catanzaro

Here is a fun and festive crown, in two weights and variations, inspired by paper crowns traditional in British holiday celebrations. The Tern version glows with the silk and features a lace edging; the Osprey version is knitted on the bias, with its points formed by working a saw tooth edging.
