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.

It shouldn’t be hard to find gifts for knitters and crocheters, right? After all, you can always buy them yarn, right? Wrong. Knitters and crocheters love yarn by definition, but they’re also fussy about it. Not just colour, but merino vs alpaca vs silk and worsted weight or worsted spun, and don’t get me started […]
Why bother lining a hat? After all, any knitted hat is probably plenty warm, right? Usually, but not always. Jesse requested a new winter beanie, one which was really warm, please. I thought I’d make him a colourwork hat, as the yarn which floats behind the pattern effectively adds another layer of warmth. (Looking for […]
For the longest time, I’ve wanted a chunky cable knit beanie topped with a big faux fur pompom. I stared at other women’s densely cabled heads. Cosy! Autumnal! Hygge! Last year, determined to make my cosy-head dreams come true, I bought a pompom and yarn and knit a hat… that was far too small. I […]
