My name is Taiga Hilliard and I am a yarn addict. I love designs that have a classic feel to them, but with a twist and am most happy when I get to work with cashmere, or other luxury yarns. When I do not have needles in my hands, I enjoy photography and reading.
I love top-down pieces, with very little finishing, and in the round patterns, which carries over into most of my designs.
Chelsea mitts are sweet and fluffy, with 2 cuff options, either 1 ruffle or 2.
These are a joy to knit for a gift or keep for yourself. Chelsea Mitts are a great way to use that special skein of cashmere or mohair you have tucked away.
The gloves shown used 2 yarns held together, but these would be just a pretty with a mohair blend fingering or sport yarn.
Bottom up design and a great pattern for a beginner.
