Wild Orchid is a simple yet special little shrug for your little girl to wear for everyday to keep warm or over a fancy dress. Wild Orchid Shrug can be made out of worsted or dk weight yarn and works well with either summery cottons, or warmer wools for winter. The lace pattern is easy to remember, and super-fast. The shrug is knit flat and then the sleeves are sewn up and the neck edging is knit in the round.

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.
