The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge welcomed Prince Louis Arthur Charles into the world on April 23. This day had special meaning for Anglophiles everywhere as also being the feast day of St. George, patron saint of England, and the birthday of William Shakespeare.
Lion Brand released two special patterns in honor of the birth of the first Cambridge baby, Prince George, in 2013. Royal Prince Baby Booties and Royal Princess Baby Booties are both made with the softest LB Collection Cashmere Yarn in Cruise and Sprout. The boy’s version has dapper bowties, and the girl’s are like ballet slippers. I was able to make one pair of each with only two balls of yarn (one ball of Cruise and one ball of Sprout).
These booties are quick and easy, suitable for a somewhat experienced beginner. Cashmere is a more expensive material, but Lion Brand’s website is generous with sales throughout the year. Any child will feel like a prince or princess with cashmere on his or her little feet.
