Princess Eugenie inspires celebrity mums and influencers with knitted fashion trend

Baby August is setting the pace!

Earlier this month when Princess Eugenie shared a snap on Instagram of her beautiful son August wearing a gorgeous knitted jumper bearing his name, we all swooned. Just so cute. 

The jumper the tot was rocking was by Charlene Holden of Uncool Wool. The designer has an Etsy shop where you can purchase a knitted cardigan or jumper, and she will embroider any name on the back.

Charlene of Uncool told HELLO! the moment that she realised that a royal baby was wearing one of her cardigans "was very surreal, but amazing". The 32-year-old added that she was "really honoured" to see that her design had been chosen as a gift for Eugenie from one of her friends and while she remembers the request for August's name, she wasn't aware that it was an order for a royal baby until she saw the images online.
