Pattern Description from Interweave Knits: “According to Webster, a rhapsody is a ‘musical composition… having an improvisatory character.’ In her Aran-inspired, textured pullover, Kathy Zimmerman has combined wide and narrow open cables with mini-cable ribs, playing them in a rhythmic pattern against a reverse stockinette-stitch background. The rustic tweed yarn adds a grainy undertone to the mix.”
