Fiber Dreams 84 Anthea PDF
Fiber Dreams Anthea takes its name from the Greek word for "flowery", and the name Anthea was used by 17th century poets to symbolize spring. This feminine, cropped sweater lives up to its name with its three-quarter length sleeves and elegant row of blossoms along the bottom hem. It is the ideal layering piece for crisp spring days and cool summer evenings. It is knit nearly seamlessly from the hem up, with only two short seams at the shoulders. Sleeve stitches are picked up from around the armhole and worked in the round to the cuff. Stitch pattern is both charted and written out.
