This wee royal is only a few years old, but she sure can rock a sweater. There’s something about children in knitwear that’s so timeless and sweet. Since this Princess Charlotte sheep cardigan pattern post is one of the most popular on this whole blog, I thought I’d round up more Princess Charlotte cardigan patterns.
I have to warn you though: Princess C’s ‘look’ is all tights and ruffled dresses. The cardigans can be a little… well, plain. Perfect for showing off a frock, but perhaps less fun to knit.
With that disclaimer, let’s look at some patterns!
The very first is this sweet little number. Aww, sibling love.
To make one similar, check out Princess Charlotte’s Sweater by Karin Fernandes.
Here’s a little princess at a little older, wearing a subtly lacey number.
To knit your own Princess Charlotte cardigan, try the very similar Anna’s Summer Cardigan by PetiteKnit. The eyelet detail and raglan lines are close to the orginal.
Or try Princess Charlotte’s Cardigan pattern by Florence Merlin for an exact match.
Here’s another classic Princess Charlotte Cardigan:
Are those the same hair clips and shoes as in the first photo? Or just very similar? Anyway, back to the sweater. Other photos of the same outfit reveal it’s pure garter stitch.
To knit your own, try a Starlette – just omit the pockets.
Or, for an even easier knit, try Beginner’s Jacket by PetiteKnit.
The all-garter look is clearly one favoured by mum. Here’s Charlotte earlier on, in a pink garter jacket. Don’t be fooled by that coller – it’s part of the dress.
For something similar, try Sleep Tight by Drops.
You’ll have to leave off the bottom two buttons and shorten the sleeves, but bonus, this Princess Charlotte cardigan pattern is completely free!
Or maybe the Lottie Cardigan by Carrie Bostick Hoge?
You could omit the ribbing and shorten it a bit if you wanted a more exact match.
Here’s the cutie in a red, cropped cardigan.
This was the hardest pattern to find a dupe for – not many people seem to be making borelo’s for babies! However, I found several options for royal-watchers wanting to knit their own.
The Perfect Princess Shrug by Julie Hines has a similar look, with that single button high at the neck. The bottom hem is rounded though, unlike the original.
Rose Water by Taiga Hilliard Designs is perhaps a closer match – although the sleeves need to be longer.
Or maybe try this Basic Baby Cardigan by Susan B. Anderson with all but the top button omitted.
So that’s it for now – five Princess Charlotte cardigan looks, and ten royal cardigan patterns.
Be sure to click through the patterns to see the original designs, and cast on your Princess Charlotte cardigan for your own little princess!

I was happy to be a beta knitter for the new Woolly Wormhead Hat collection. The Perceptions Hats are all stranded colourwork (hello, my fave), and each has a beautiful crown. I mean – look at them! I choose Number Three, which turned out to be Hermes: “the Greek god of travel who bridged the […]
In the last six months, I’ve sewed a whole bunch of face masks. Most face masks fit well, but none were perfect. We picked up a couple of ready-made reusable face masks to try out, and J decided he preferred them. The pattern is easy as anything to make – easier than any other pattern […]
A cake recipe so delicious, no one will ever suspect its vegan.
Like a lot of us, I’m making face masks. Here’s the free pattern I used (and how they look on).
