Day 4 - Eric

And today -- our favorite sea-faring prince.  He's apparently a HUGE favorite of Disney fans far and wide, overwhelmingly voted Most Handsome in many internet forums.  I would agree, especially if you don't count that hideous statue of him from the first scene.  His Blanket Buddy is a pretty easy one...just a few extra rows for his hair (yes, there are sc's right beside dc's...that was on purpose and helps add to the wind-swept look on the sides.  Trust me :) ) and some strategic color changes for his clothes.  And yes, I DID include his open-chested shirt.  :)  Swing by my Ravelry shop here to get the base pattern (otherwise these FREE notes won't make sense) and give him a whirl!

Again, he's just for my own need to make 'em mad out there in Anaheim.

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!
