Anton is a member of my new baby collection “The Taddles”. Just like his sister Antonia he loves his life colorful patterned. Therefore his headdress is just as striking as the features surrounding him. So he feels absolutely comfortable and clearly shows it by a satisfied smile.

The sweater is designed in a simple cut - so even patient beginners can knit it. Of course, the motif in this pattern can be knitted. However, those who prefer to embroider the smaller areas of
color with the duplicate stitch, can have a look to my video. Here I explain the technique of duplicate stitch and
stem stitch for the outlines (in a separate video). The words are German, but the technique is understandable for
all languages. Both are available here.
