As the Royal Wedding approaches, I’ve chosen something topical for my Saturday Selection today.
I’m always amazed at what you can do with a pair of needles and some yarn – remember my Wooly Wedding post recently? – but now, thanks to Debi Birkin at Periwinkle Park, you can knit your own crown. Well, officially, it’s for the teapot but, as Billy Connelly said ‘Never trust a man who, when left alone in a room with a tea cosy, doesn’t try it on.’
I have had knitting patterns from Debi before and she has some adorable ones in her Etsy shop.

LOLOLOL I ABSOLUTELY LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS!
Oh if only I could knit!! ..and that egg cozy!!! WOW!
Are you intending to make some? I’ll put an order in for some egg cozy’s for sure 😉
I adore crowns anyhow – and have tons of things shaped in a crown around the flat! In fact, I was going to do a crown picture post of little things I have – in honour for the Royal Wedding too!!

Hello Dot, I’m sorry about the delay in replying.
I actually haven’t got the knitted crown pattern myself. I do have the ‘Knit Your Own Royal Wedding’ book from when William and Kate married but the Queen’s outfits in that book don’t include a crown, just the usual sort of hats she generally wears.
I hope you have managed, by now, to get some help but, if not, maybe you could try contacting the designer herself.
