Changing Guards at Buckingham Palace
THIS PATTERN IS PART OF THE CORONATION KNITS EBOOK COLLECTION AND IS NOT AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE SEPARATELY.
THE BOOK IS ALSO AVAILABLE IN PRINT FORMAT FROM MY WEBSITE.
This adorable little boys sleeveless pullover has full instructions for both knitting in the round or knitting flat in two pieces. It is knitted from the bottom up and the little soldiers are knitted in combined fair isle and intarsia techniques. The v neck is closed with a button fastening to make it easier to get in and out of.
Full written instructions are provided alongside a chart for the soldiers themselves.
