The Rhinebeck Sweater Book



One of the best parts of a festival is the community: meeting new friends and old, spotting knits in the wild, and learning more about the yarns you buy from the people who know them best. Ysolda brings the stories behind the yarns featured in the sweaters to you, interviewing dyers, spinners and shepherds. No one knows yarn better than Clara Parkes and she shares her experiences of shopping at festivals in an evocative story about the joy of a hand-knit sweater full of memories.

Making a special new sweater to wear to Rhinebeck has become a tradition for many knitters. Pattern selections are pored over, eye-catching colours are chosen from favourite dyers, techniques are selected to highlight skills. Knitters work furiously before the festival, finishing in the car, blocking on hotel beds, anything to ensure the fabulous new garment can make its debut in the perfect environment — among a community who will truly appreciate it. It doesn’t matter any more whether a Rhinebeck sweater is actually worn to Rhinebeck, the important thing is to wear it somewhere with pride. Make something that you love, and that demonstrates your love for knitting and for yarn. Find the perfect pattern for yours in The Rhinebeck Sweater.
