Rheya cardigan, this is another my design for Interweave Knits, Spring 2015 with Velum cardigan. I used very thin yarn and thin needles also. It needs a lots of endurance and the result is always pleased. Preview page is here. It’s available digital download only at the Interweave store now. Physical release is in February 17th. Ravelry Design page is here.

I suggested yellowgreen for MC and rubyred for CC. I made sample swatch used those colour. Here are some of options for colour variations for this delicate lacy cardigan.
