The Rhinebeck Sweater

I am so absolutely thrilled to be included in this wonderful new book by Ysolda Teague, called The Rhinebeck Sweater.

Included are 12 sweaters by an incredible group of designers. The book is available in print (shipping next month) or as an e-book here:

Here is my design, Apple Cider Donut🙂





I have found that the weather at The New York Sheep and Wool festival in Rhinebeck, NY in October can be very difficult to predict. I always take that into account when designing my “Rhinebeck” sweater for each year. Apple Cider is shown with 4” of positive ease so that it may be worn over a t-shirt if the weather is on the warmer side, or used as a jacket over another sweater if the weather is chilly. Buttons are placed at the collar and top of the sweater only to allow for ease of movement. Apple Cider is simply worked from the top down in one piece in Stockinette Stitch, the stitches for the collar are then picked up and worked in a very easy reversible cable and rib pattern and can be worn up or folded over. The sample uses Fisherman 2-ply from Bartlett yarn, a sturdy yarn that knits up beautifully and quickly.

You can find Apple Cider Donut on Ravelry here:
