Day 2 -- Sultan Aladdin

Here's my next new Prince for your collection...Sultan Aladdin!  In case you missed it, you can grab the base pattern here and get started right away.  And if you didn't join me until today, you can get the FREE notes for Prince Charming on yesterday's post.  Enjoy!

Again, I made these for my own collection...and you should, too.  Probably shouldn't sell them or Big Name Company might get upset.  ;)

You have my permission to do whatever with any blanket you make from this pattern (of course you can, it’s your blanket!). I’d love a link back to this pattern if you post a finished prince online. But PLEASE do not sell, distribute, or rewrite-and-call-your-own these FREE NOTES or any part of them to anyone at any time (of course you won’t, because they're mine). I spend a bunch of time making up and testing my patterns and getting them ready to share…please respect this so I can keep on doing it! Thanks!
