Royal Baby, What will it be?

We all waited for the birth of Prince George with great anticipation and the same holds true for the newest addition to the royal family. I have to admit that I am curious as to the gender of their baby, but I think all babies have a “royal” quality to them even if they don’t live in a palace.

Red Heart decided to create two patterns that you could make for a boy or a girl, knit or crochet. If you are not interested in the “traditional” baby colors or if the gender is not known, mix it up and create your own masterpiece. I hope you enjoy knitting or crocheting for your little prince or princess and please share your creation with us on our Red Heart Facebook page.

For my crochet friends I present you with this Royal Crochet Onesie. I know my children lived in onesies. Red Heart Soft Baby Steps is a perfect yarn for this project.

    I love both of these! So cute. My question is how could one put the ruffled collar and sleeves from the knitted onsie onto the crocheted one?

      Hi Sarah, Thanks for your question! The knit version has a picot bind off, which creates little picots along the edges. You could add picots to the edges of the crochet version, but we do not have instructions for them.

        Sarah, a crochet picoh is very easy. Slip stitch into a stitch on the edge of the neck (sc, dc, whatever). Chain 2 go back into the first chain and slip stitch. That is a picoh.

        hi in answer to your question about picot edging on any thing crochet, you can simply make a single picot edging and crochet or sew onto item, hope this helps

    Message for Sarah,
    A crochet picot is super easy. Pick up anywhere along your edge and *work a single crochet into the stitch. Work 3 chains, turn and make a slip stitch in the first single chain. Skip the next stitch and then work 1 single crochet in the next 2 stitches.*
    Repeat
