What’s Rhinebeck without a couple of Rhinebeck sweaters???
I knit two sweaters just for my trip. The weather can vary quite a bit on each year, but I’m a thin-skinned California girl so I opted for a couple sweaters on the heavier side.
Pattern: Keynote by Wencke Pertermann
Size: 38.75 at the shoulders and 43.25 for the hip
Yarn: Madelinetosh 80/10/10 Sport
Sadly this is no longer in my life. It was huge in the shoulders. A wide neckline that didn’t sit well. The stitch pattern was really pretty though. The yarn had been in my stash since 2011, so it was a worthy project and looked nice for the event.
Pattern: Ellery by Jenn Emerson
Size: 38 ish, I don’t know what that means now, but I probably added extra increases through the hip.
Yarn: Madelinetosh 80/10/10 MCN Worsted
Jenn is a knitting friend of mine and everyone in one of my knitting groups knit the same pattern. It’s tradition and it was super fun to be part of the rainbow in 2018. This sweater is pretty heavy for my usual climate, but I’m holding onto it for chilly winter nights as our living room doesn’t have heat. Easy pattern and pretty too! I’d had the yarn since 2014 and it sheds so much. So many pills. So soft though.
And just in case you think I’m the only person who knits a sweater for Rhinebeck, I encourage you to click here! You’ll find me looking really awkward right around 1 hour, 43 minutes.
