This week, we’re making the C for The Crown square! This square features a representation of the Imperial State Crown as worn by HM Queen Elizabeth II, portrayed thus far by Claire Foy (soon to be portrayed by Olivia Colman) in the Netflix original series The Crown. For this square, we’ll use Stylecraft Special DK yarn in the colors Mustard and Royal.
I’ll be honest, I wasn’t sure how much I would like the design of this square when I was just a few rows in. However, after reaching the halfway point, my fears were completely put to rest and it is now one of my favorite things I have ever made!
This square is completely reversible (not all of the GABMAL squares are). I honestly can’t decide if I like the background in Royal or Mustard…what do you think?

If you are new to double-knitting, check out our Knitting for Newbies video tutorial series! These videos will teach you everything you need to know to get started with double-knitting, including how to cast on, how to double-knit, how to work color changes in double-knitting, and lots more!
Note: There is a problem with some of the K4N videos cutting off at about 15 minutes. I am working to get this resolved. Apologies!
