In the mood to while away the afternoon in a dusty book shop or gallery? Pining for the days of beat poetry and abstract expressionism? Then Anapest is the sweater for you! Feeling more prosaic? It’s still a great choice! This is the classic turtleneck (think Audrey, Marilyn and Jackie) but with a twist. Knit up in Purl Soho’s “Flax Down” it’s soft and lofty as can be, and the fitted clean raglan increases are offset by a wide boxy body that is both comfortable and flattering. The high-low vented hem adds just a little bit of interest while still maintaining that classic elegance. Anapest is a fun and simple knit that will transform into your new go-to sweater!
