The pattern isn’t an exact match, but if you want to knit Princess Charlotte’s sheep cardigan, it’s pretty dang close.
Swap out the colours and watch people double-take when they see your “wait-is-that-the-royal??” baby.
At least one knitter has already done just that, with a lovely buttery yellow Sheep Yoke Cardigan (and way before Princess C tried the same thing!). I won’t share the photo here, as it’s a private Ravelry project, not a public-facing Ravelry pattern, but you can log into Rav and see it here.
Side by side, I think it’s clear how similar they are:
I’m taking note of this pattern, because whether you watch them or not, royals set fashions. I predict we’ll see a lot more animal yoked cardigans on the younger set in the next year or so.
I’d like to pretend I’m ahead of the curve, having knit this adorable sweater for my niece with another free knitting pattern – All in a Nutshell.
All week I’ve been humming raindrops keep fallin’ on my head. All because of these adorable crochet amigurumi raindrops! Summer showers aren’t so sweet (especially when you’ve forgotten your umbrella!) but these wee raindrops are. I crocheted these little guys as an illustration of how an amigurumi’s face can change it’s whole appearance. Seriously, it […]

What if many crafters around the world, knitted and crocheted blankets from 2,000 miles of yarn? And these blankets were displayed in […]
Stop the presses: this amigurumi sausage dog might be the cutest thing I’ve ever crocheted. “Who me?” “Yes you!” The pattern is from Adorable Amigurumi. A friend picked it up for a couple of francs at a second hand book sale. Look at this cute lil book! So many new creatures to crochet! A post […]
I’m not a royal watcher, but I get the appeal. Those royals! They’re like a real life BBC drama (I will watch a good BBC drama about the royals. I get it. I do). So when I saw this pop up on my Facebook feed, I knew I had to share it. Little Princess Charlotte, […]
Yep, I block my socks! Not every time I wear them, but when they’re fresh off the needles. Before now, I’ve just patted them out onto a towel, but now I’ve made myself a couple of pairs of home made sock blockers. I’ve spent a bit of time drooling over beautiful sock blockers on Etsy […]
