Our favourite royal patterns!
We’re celebrating Queen Elizabeth II’s 90th birthday this week with a selection of right royal patterns! From fun stashbuster knits to elegant shawls, we think Her Majesty would love these!
Celebrate the Queen’s birthday with some royal knitting! The Queen is well known for her favourite dog breed, the Corgi, and has owned over 30 corgies during her lifetime. We love Deadly Knitshade’s Queen’s Corgis pattern – perfect for a royal celebration!
Always a great sport, here is the Queen with James Bond (Daniel Craig) and the royal corgis starring in the Olympic Opening Ceremony. Click here for the hilarious clip!
Hilarious! Knit a chocolate cover in the shape of the Queen! These would make fabulous toppers for a cake, or sit prettily on a tray of cup cakes.
Nothing says summer birthday like bunting. We love this gorgeous teacosy adorned with tiny bunting – with knitted bunting to match! Set yourself up in the garden with a place of scones, jam and cream, and a nice big pot of tea – what more do you need for a proper English celebration?
Surely Her Royal Highness, (and every other birthday girl!) would love The Birthday Shawl by Kate Ellis of Kate’s Twirl. Knitted top down, this is an ideal first shawl for beginners. The lace edging is added after a simple garter stitch body and the whole shawl knits up very quickly, so it’s ideal for a gift. You’ll need 365m (395 yards) of 4ply or fingering weight yarn, which is approximately 100g. Try Fyberspates Scrumptious 4ply, a beautiful blend of merino wool and silk, or Cascade Heritage 150, which comes in some truly delicious shades and 150g has 450m for a great price.
What would you knit the girl who has everything?
For more fabulous patterns…
