Chicknits on joining the sleeves to the body of a bottom-up raglan (mostly) seamless. Did I consider ripping back my still as of yet zipperless gray Ribby Cardi? Yes I did.

I like the collar on this Anthropologie sweater.

Prettyknits Jackie O cardigan is fantastic, but sadly patternless PDF pattern here.

    The link via Craftzine (via planetjune, actually) for the shrink plastic rings is broken… is there a “backdoor”?

    Jess – the link is working for me, here it is directly: shink rings at Planet June.

    If you like the collar on that Anthropologie cardigan, you might like the Tilted Duster sweater from one of the recent Interweave knits. Here’s a link to a fine example of one:

    Lesley – Thanks, I’ve seen the Tilted Duster before and I think I like the one you linked to better than the one in the magazine!

    I’ve made one of those shrink dink rings recently. There’s something really satisfying about watching it shrink into jewelry the oven. :o)

    And I like that Anthropologie sweater too! Too bad I don’t have the dough for it.

    Nob Hill from the latest issue of knitty is pretty similar to the Anthropologie sweater too.
