You might have noticed that I have a new finished project and pattern on ravelry: the Annie Pullover. In fact said pullover has been finished for more than a year now. I designed it for a book called “Hitch: Patterns Inspired by the Films of Alfred Hitchcock” which will be published later this month and is full of exactly that: patterns that have been inspired by the films of the master of suspence. My sweater is named for a character from “The Birds“. Annie is the brown haired down-to-earth teacher of Bodega Bay and one if the more interesting female roles in a Hitchcock film. She contrasts the blonde female lead Melanie also in her practical, yet very modern, wardrobe. This is where I drew my inspiration for this sweater from. You can read more about her and see some movie stills here.

The Annie Pullover consists of identical front and back pieces and has grown-on three-quarter-length sleeves. You start it by knitting the lower sleeve parts from one corner up and then join these sleeve parts to the body to form angled sleeves. This ensures a great fit and fewer fabric folds under your arms. And, of course, it adds interest to the knitting process of this simple stockinette sweater. At least I had a great time doing the maths for it ;o). You will read more about the book and the sweater here soon. So I leave you with this and the information that you can preorder the book already as a pdf or a pdf and the printed book. Preordering will also secure you two extra patterns that aren’t included in the book.
