To bead or not to bead, that is the question? Either way these are wonderful to knit and wear. We all deserve a little luxury in our lives. 100% cashmere is pure luxury to knit with, to give as a gift, or to keep for yourself. These only use 1 skein for most sizes, so you can use up that special skein you picked up and have been waiting for a pattern worthy of your cashmere. The lace pattern is easy to memorize and you can add beads for an extra special touch. This pattern works with either fingering or sport.

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.
