A Knit A Week
Easter Knits for the Royals
All of these patterns came from the amazing
book, Itty Bitty Toys by Susan B. Anderson.
I started this tradition last year, when I made the sock monkey
for the Prince's basket, hoping to distract him from
the lack of candy. It worked so well for all the kids
that I did it again this year!!
A little hippo for Princess #1 out of
leftover Socks that Rock sock yarn in the
Wonderful Goodness and Mr. Greenjeans colorways.
A stripey snake, complete with slithery tongue
for Princess #2 out of leftover Misti Alpaca
A reversible bluebird/egg with a little nest for Princess #3.
How cool is this pattern???? Love this.
It was made out of scraps of Cascade 220.
And last, but not least, a little "Biscuit" puppy for the Prince.
He is made out of scraps of Cascade 220 and other
