An Aran for Anne
The elegant Miss Anne Elliot merits her own pretty pullover, with empire-style waist shaping and a variety of twisted stitch patterns to keep you interested. Elegant Ribbing accentuates the waist shaping, while budding (bobbling) vines wind their way up front, back, and sleeves, recalling Anne’s love of the countryside. And the easy-to-remember Inverted Gull Stitch pattern nods to her beloved, Captain Frederick Wentworth, much at sea.
Like An Aran for Frederick, An Aran for Anne is worked in the round from the bottom up. The yoke is a saddle-shouldered hybrid style. Waist-shaping and a wider, almost boat-style neck ensure that shapely Anne won’t be mistaken for manly Frederick!
