Anthea (pronounced ahn-THEE-ah), the Greek word for “flowery,” was used as a by-name of the goddess Hera. In the 17th century English poets used the name Anthea to symbolize spring. Here, Anthea is a feminine little sweater whose only decorations are the scallops and the row of blossoms along the bottom hem. With ¾-length sleeves and cropped length it’s a simple thing to throw over your light weight tops when summer’s cool evening winds begin to stir.

The seamless sweater is knit from the hem up in one piece to the armholes. After shoulders are seamed, sleeve stitches are picked up around the armhole. Sleeve caps are worked in short rows, then sleeves are worked in the round to the hem. Simple garter stitch neckline and button bands finish the garment.
