In celebration of today being yet another bank holiday and the impending Royal Wedding (What do you mean ‘What royal wedding?’ Where have you beeeen?) Collins & Brown are inviting readers of SimplyKnitting.co.uk to download a free pattern to knit an adorable corgi.
An excerpt from Collins & Brown’s bestselling book Best in Show: Knit Your Own Dog by Jo Osborne and Sally Muir, this dog is famously associated with the British Royal Family, making this the perfect companion to knit while watching the Royal Wedding this Friday.
Alternatively knit a few up in advance to take to a street party or Bank Holiday picnic – the royals have sixteen dogs, according to Jo and Sally, so you might want to get some friends to help out if you want the entire pack!
