Okay knitted amigurumi enthusiasts, this book is for you!  To commemorate the royal wedding of Prince William of Wales to Miss Catherine Middleton, Fiona Goble has created this enchanted book of knitting patterns - and she leaves no detail to chance.  Included patterns are:
  • Prince William of Wales
  • Catherine Middleton
  • Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury
  • Prince Harry
  • Queen Elizabeth II
  • Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh
  • Charles, Prince of Wales
  • Camilla, The Duchess of Cornwall
  • The Royal Corgis
  • Footman
  • Suits, Dresses, & Hats for the Guests
Fiona Goble makes sure that knitting the Royal Family is a fun and charming experience by including patterns for knitters of all levels and a fold-together card balcony so that your knitted newlyweds can wave to the cheering crowds.  My 6 year old daughter wants mommy to knit these lickety-split - or more precisely for mommy to knit the Prince and Princess (and the Queen's Corgis).  Fun and whimsical, anyone who knits toys, dolls, or has an affinity for the British Royals will really enjoy this book!

I really love the attention to detail Goble gives to each Royal.  From the Royal Military Uniforms to  the Queen's Corsage to the bride's veil, Goble is sure to add little touches to bring each member of the Royal family to life.  She also shares a little trivia about each Royal.  Adorable and delightful, this book of patterns encompasses all of the pageantry of the upcoming Royal Wedding!
