The author lives close to not
only Sandringham but the estate of the Duke and Duchess of
Cambridge, and has had some royal clients for her designs.
Here is a book of baby knitwear inspired by the new generation
of young royals.
As well as having a regal theme, the collection is classically
British, being a combination of practicality and simple, understated
style. There are five sets of garments and toys inspired by
certain royals from Queen Victoria to young Prince George
and places such as Windsor and Balmoral. Patterns are in written
form with a list of what you need and a photo. This is a book
aimed at the knitter who does not need reminding of how to
knit but can pick up a pattern and make it, although none
of the patterns is fancy or advanced and uses basic stitches.
You can easily find the section you want as each has a main
color and the pages are tinted that shade, a nice touch. This
book is likely to last some time as, although none of the
designs look old fashioned, the classic styling of them will
not quickly date. A good choice for anybody wanting to make
tasteful baby clothes.
If you cannot find a good range of knitting materials locally
for a list of suppliers.
