A sport weight, short sleeve, round yoke sweater in 11 sizes with 3 words: KNIT, YARN and PURL.
In the fall of 2019, I was going to be heading to the New York Sheep and Wool festival, otherwise known as Rhinebeck. The concept of the Rhinebeck sweater has been established for years and I was thinking it would be the perfect time to wear a design that I had been thinking about for years. I have had many requests to write this up as a sweater, but the problem lies in being able to grade the word charts to fit into the many sizes. I have settled on 3 words and a yoked sweater, although I’ll include all the charts from the original sweater in case, you’re a designer at heart, and would like to apply your own math to your particular size. I say: “Go for it!”
The sweater is worked from the neck down and has a circular yoke construction. Sleeve stitches are held to be picked up later and worked downward. The sweater is designed with 2-3” of positive ease.
