Anne-Cordelia

Below you will find the instructions to make Anne-Cordelia, a sweater for young girls. This is the first pattern I’ve ever designed but I hope that it will not be the last.

Anne-Cordelia, which is named after Anne Shirley from Anne of Green Gables, is a fairly basic sweater with a v-neck and raglan sleeves as well as some seed-stitch bordering.

There are instructions here for sizes 3-6 months and 2T.

Materials Needed

  • One size 9 US (5.5mm) circular needle
  • One tapestry needle
  • ~240 yards of yarn; I used Caron Simply Soft which is an acrylic yarn. I’m not overly fond of it but it wears well and is kid-friendly. It is worsted-weight.
  • Scrap yarn to hold sleeve stitches
  • Optional: Size 9 US (5.5 mm) DPNs; I used magic loop with the circular needle to construct the sleeves. However, some people may prefer to use 4 DPNs to do the same thing.
  • Scissors and a measuring tape

Notes:

PM = Place marker

yo = Yarn over

ssk = slip, slip, knit
SM = Slip marker

k2tog = Knit 2 sts together
inc = (increase st) Knit into front and back of next stitch

St. stitch=Stockinette stitch

Seed stitch:

Flat (even number of stitches)
Row 1: * K1, p1 * ; repeat from * to *
Row 2: * P1, k1 * ; repeat from * to *
Repeat these 2 rows
Flat (odd number of stitches)
Row 1: K1 * p1 , k1 * ; repeat from * to *
Repeat row 1.
In the round (even number of stitches)
Row 1: * K1, p1 * ; repeat from * to *
Repeat row 1
In the round (odd number of stitches)
Row 1: K1 * p1 , k1 * ; repeat from * to *
Row 2: P1 * k1 , p1 * ; repeat from * to *
Repeat these 2 rows
TIP: Always work a K over a P stitch and a P over a K stitch (as the stitches face you).
