I've also included a couple of sleeve options in case you don't like the flop, and I made the hat optional so you can decide if you want it sewn on or not. I used Fun Fur for the feathery thing but you can use regular worsted yarn (and the feather pattern from Prince Phillip) if you're worried about giving Fun Fur to the recipient of the Blanket Buddy.
Thanks for sticking with me this week as I introduce my new Prince Collection...I hope you love them as much as I do!
And again, just padding my own collection...you probably should keep yours (or gift, cuz you're awesome like that), too. *wink*

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!
