Knitting community celebrates royal baby with free patterns

Since the 11th century, wool has been a driving force in Great Britain's economy.

If you are a sucker for free patterns, baby patterns, now's the time to download all the goodies: toys, hats, baby bootie patterns, jumpers, and crowns, yes, crowns!

Alpaca Direct offers this sweet baby sheep hat pattern, complete with colorwork sheep.

Rowan Yarns offers a knitting design by renown designer Martin Storey. "Charles," a baby jumper fit for a prince. Just sign into the website and start downloading.

Knitting Daily posted a lovely pair of blue bootees along with nine other free baby bootie patterns.

You can even knit an amigurumi royal baby to add to the royal family, Prince William and Princess Kate. The British online publication allaboutyou.com offers the free pattern


And the cute little royal baby crown pattern above is available for $4.00, designed by Jami Klehr, and it is precious. The knitted crown circlet pattern below by Dani Sunshine is free on Ravelry.
