Rhinebeck Sweater – Tavern Sunset

You’ve seen this sweater before in my post about not actually paying attention to cable charts. haha.

Beekman Tavern Sunset

This is my other test knit for Ysolda’s book “The Rhinebeck Sweater“. It’s Thea Colman’s design – Beekman Tavern. I knit mine in Malabrigo Rios (one of my new favorite yarns) since the yarn called for in the pattern – Foxhill Farm Cormo – can only be purchased at Rhinebeck or the farm. The cormo is amazingly soft and warm and I plan to buy a sweater quantity at Rhinebeck this year. The Rios though gives the sweater a different look and is also quite warm, despite the center cable panel.

I made some slight adjustments to my sweater, continuing the raglan decreases and removing a couple rows from the neck ribbing. I don’t have a button yet for the collar. I tried to find some while in Scotland but came up empty handed. I’ll have to poke around Rhinebeck to see what I can find.

I love the details of this sweater. I’m also a huge sucker for cables.

You’ll see me running around Rhinebeck wearing this sweater this year. And quite possibly making some silly face like this one. šŸ˜€

Ooo pretty sweater!

Not really sure why I make all these silly faces.

 

I can’t wait to see everyone’s lovely Rhinebeck sweater creations. I’ll have to try to remember to get pictures. See you there!
