Recreate Princess Charlotte’s Style
Recreate Princess Charlotte’s Style

Princess Charlotte is often in the headlines seen sporting a new, and utterly adorable outfit. Her style captures the hearts of parents everywhere, eager to dress their child similar to the royal. A recent news story featured Charlotte wearing a cute sheep-design cardigan from John Lewis. The store later confirmed that the garment sold out very soon after the photograph of the princess – taken by her mother the Duchess of Cambridge – was released to the public. Already a style icon at the tender age of two, it's no surprise parents want to add an elegant 'Charlotte-style' touch to their little prince and princess' wardrobes. Instead of buying something similar why not knit or crochet one? We like to treat you, so check out the patterns below – they're all free!
