KNIT FOR A PRINCESS - Princess Charlotte Cardigan Patterns

Knit for a Princess: Five Princess Charlotte Cardigan Knitting Patterns

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!

70+ gifts for knitters and crocheters

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 […]

Lining a hat: the warmest winter beanie!

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 […]

Cable knit beanie with fur pompom (+ the free knitting pattern I used)

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 […]
