Knit Your Own Royal Wedding by Fiona Goble is a collection of patterns based on dolls that are easy to knit with knit clothes. The introduction explains a bit about the wedding of Kate and William, then a short section explaining what supplies you'll need to knit the wedding. Needle sizes are in both UK and US so you can be sure of getting the right gauge, accessories are made from beads, sequins, ribbon, wire and tiny buttons. There is an overview of how to knit that's clearly diagrammed if you are a complete beginner to knitting and instructions for sewing together the dolls and clothes.
The basic pattern for the dolls is easy enough for a novice knitter to make, and quick to stitch for someone with some experience. If you are a complete beginner, you should be able to finish at least William and Kate by 29 April 2011, a more experienced knitter will be able to do quite a bit more.
The cute! Seriously, I can't get over the cute. Prince Harry, Prince Phillip, Prince Charles and of course, Prince William all in their dress uniforms. The Archbishop in his vestments with embroidered details, Camilla with her handbag and little ribbon rose brooch, the Queen with her pearls, and of course Catherine, the bride, with a little rhinestone engagement ring and a wire tiara. All the tiny details just make this set of dolls irresistible. Even if you aren't a royal watcher, you may want the patterns just to make dolls for yourself. Each doll pattern has an explanation of who it is, and in the case of the uniforms, why they are wearing that uniform.Read more ›
The figures are all knitted using the basic knit and purl techniques and are filled with polyester stuffing. There are illustrated explanations of knitting basics if you need a little assistance with that. Tiny beads, sequins, gems, buttons and more are lovely embellishments to the delightful dolls. Knit Your Own Royal Wedding also contains extra patterns for additional clothes and accessories for the dolls. The author even suggests knitting a version of yourself, so you can attend the regal event as well! The book comes complete with a fold out model of the balcony where the Royal Family will gather to be admired by the crowds below.
Whether you knit or not, Knit Your Own Royal Wedding is a unique memento of this very special occasion!
I have a lot of fun because instead of creating
The royal family, I am trying to adapt the characters
to my own family because my son is also getting married.
