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.
The Winslow Baby sweater has the look of complicated stranded color work, but is in fact a very simple slip stitch pattern. Only one color is worked per row, so this is deceivingly easy. Depending on what colors you choose, you can make this for a boy, girl or gender neutral.
