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.
Speedy Baby was born because I needed a special baby shower gift that would be great for a boy or a girl and I needed it by the next day.
Speedy can easily be knitted in an afternoon or evening and does not need to be blocked.
Top down, seamless and you can use 2 fun, funky or vintage buttons to really make this cardigan unique. This has the look and feel of a super expensive boutique sweater, and no one has to know you did not spend $$$ for it.
This is designed for super bulky yarn, but you can double bulky, or use 4 strands of worsted or aran yarn.
