Product Description

Review

There was no shortage of floral tributes at this year's Sandringham Flower Show, but what really caught the eye of Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall was a bridal bouquet of white blooms including a colourful knitted interpretation of the royal wedding (complete with Woollyam and his bride). The work of "knit wit" Barbara Frary of Fakenham, Norfolk, it was a big hit with the royal couple, who love a good yarn. "Oh, what fun, just look at this. I recognise myself in the salmon outfit," said the Duchess, while her husband chuckled as he pointed to a knitted corgi. "I Love it!" Camilla declared. --Hello Magazine 8th August 2011

About the Author

4.0 out of 5 stars Somebody important missing 10 Mar 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Just received my copy this morning. It is delightful and I shall need to get the knitting pins out now to have it all done in time. Just one question. where is the delightful, smart, unspoilt Mrs Middleton. Kate's Mum. Surely the second most important lady at a wedding, even if your new ma in law is the Queen. I shall knit her up regardless but she wont be going in jeans and I have no idea of her style, so going to do her in Pink unless she asks otherwise. I adore the corgis.Thank you Fiona

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny!! 28 Mar 2011
Format:Paperback
I spotted this in the bookshop on saturday and had to buy it for my mum for mothers day. It is hilarious!! I doubt she would actually knit this as it looks quite fiddly but its a nice unsual gift and i know it'll make her laugh. On the otherhand she might be itching to knit it and i will end up with a knitted Royal Family for my birthday......should have thought of that before!

What a fantastic and inventive way of celebrating the wedding!! I received my copy this morning and I have already started on the patterns. It is very clearly explained and easy to understand, and should suit knitters of any ability. Im going to need to get some more wool though!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Life Changing 13 May 2011
Format:Paperback
This book has quite literally saved my life. I work in a low temperature environment (cold meat storage in lidl). This can be uncomfortable in long streches as I carelessly complained to my nan during one of our countdown marathons. From the following week I found myself in receipt of a steady stream of knitted garments designed to ease my suffering. Alas they had the opposite effect. I'm not a strong willed individual at the best of times so couldn't bring myself to refuse the hat and gloves that came first, even though the "pigtail" attachments on the hat and linking stretch of braided wool between the gloves drew some scorn from the gathered hoodies at the precinct. I have to admit they were cosy and I had grown rather fond of them but one particular young man with a BMX and an ASBO thought they'd provide more warmth by being set on fire on my walk home. The followig week it was a Dave Starsky zip up cardigan... at least the cut was Starsky, the colour scheme was more Timmy Mallet. This went in a rather tiresome mugging the same evening in the Greenock badlands; the muggers removed my shoes to prevent me pursuing them, a wholly unecessary precaution on their part as my girlfriend had told me she would dump me if I ever wore it in public again. The fact that she did this over the tannoy in Greenock Lidl where we both work was i felt a little on the cruel side but she's a lot bigger than me so I didn't complain. The final straw came with the aztec smock in week 3, hoodie hell on the way to work, public domestic in lidl and a threat to set me on fire next time on the way home had me at a low, but the sight of the flourescent green knitted trainers my nan had done to replace the ones that went in the mugging meant I had to act.

2.0 out of 5 stars Fiddly 18 Mar 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A great idea and i was really excited about receiving it. However, I wouldn't call myself a novice knitter, but after knitting a jacket from this book I feel like it. The figures are small, meaning they don't take TOO long to knit, but the obvious downfall of them being small is the size of the limbs. The jacket sleeves were hard enough but whatever fits in it I don't even want to think about it. I am going to keep the book in the hope that one day I will try again but for now I don't have the patience for it!!

By Eco Chica TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I saw this book last week and thought I could resist but have given up and now have it on order.

I was speaking to the lady that owns my LYS and her complaint was Kate's face is not pretty enough in this knitted version to make her want to stock the book.

I was not deterred, especially after hearing that when she recently make a knitted Little Mermaid, the face went totally wrong.

I'm looking forward to doing the embroidery on the faces and those TOTALLY CUTE teeny little hats.

I think the Duke medals and stuff are going to be a lot of fun.

This is a fantastic idea for a book, a knitting binge and a keepsake.

I will update this review when I've got a couple of the figures under my hat.

I was so glad that it uses DK, I'm no fan of 4-ply.

I might also make the little dogs into key fobs or bag charms..... oH WHAT FUN !!!!!

____________________________

I have now received the book and am extremely happy with it. All the little clothes and the figures themselves are constructed by making 2 pieces. That means you won't need Double Pointed Knitting Needles ! How fantastic is that!
The increasing and decreasing methods are my favourites: K2tog/ SSK + KF&B/ M1F
As all the pieces (except for the shoes) use Double Knitting Yarn, that means you can get lots of colours from the TAPESTRY WOOL range at your local yarn store.
I'm so excited about this book because eventually I intend to use the pattern templates to create versions of my own family !!!
