Today I bring to you not one but two (re-) releases, originally published by Interweave in 2012, time sure does fly!
First is a sweet little raglan cardigan worked in the most delicious Fyberspates Scrumptious Lace. The cardigan is worked from the top down seamlessly and requires only one skein of yarn. It is trimmed with medallion lace edging after the body of the cardigan is finished. The cardigan is designed to be worn open. The lace pattern is charted.
take care if making the largest size that should use almost the whole skein of yarn.Yarn amounts may vary if you are substituting the yarn.
Size 30 ½ (34 ½, 38 ½, 42, 46, 50) in / 77.5 (87.5, 98, 106.5, 117, 127) cm bust circumference. Cardigan shown measures 30 ½ in / 77.5 cm, modeled with 2 in / 5 cm of negative ease.

The second pattern I'd like to share is the Arrow pullover with its faux seams and a deep cowl neck that tailor a clean silhouette.
This pullover is worked in the round from the hem upto the armholes' level. Similarly, the sleeves are worked in the round up from the cuff.
They are then joined to the body at the underarms to work the yoke and set-in sleeves simultaneously. The sleeve caps are shaped using short rows shaping at the top (but there are no wraps to fiddle with).
The sweater is worked in a DK weight yarn, the sample was knitted in Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend, a very round singles yarn that produces wonderfully smooth fabric.
Size – 32 (36, 40, 44, 48) in / 81.5 (91.5, 101.5, 112, 122) cm finished bust circumference. Pullover shown measures 32 in / 81.5 cm worn with 1 in / 2.5 cm of negative ease.
Gauge – 22 sts and 30 rnds = 4 in / 10 cm in St st on smaller needle.
Skill level – Knit, purl, working in the round and flat, short-rows, kitchener stitch, three-needle bind off, simple increases and decreases, and finishing.
