Hooked on corgi
A corgi that doesn’t need walking or feeding. This is a Victorian treat.
“Royal wedding: Knit your own corgi
The Queen has loved corgis since receiving one for her 18th birthday. They'll surely be putting in an appearance at the wedding of the year – but can you emulate this famously hardworking breed and produce a knitted version to match?
The Queen has owned Pembroke Welsh corgis since she was given her first pet, named Susan, for her eighteenth birthday in 1944. The breed is well known for being hardworking – though if the truth be told, the Queen's own corgis have not had to work that hard. They live in wicker baskets in a box room in the palace and are fed from silver bowls. They are used to journeys in chauffeur-driven limousines and private planes.
