The original version of the Tracery Pullover (worked with different shaping in a now discontinued yarn) was my first Rhinebeck Sweater: an autumnal pullover that I was excited and proud to show off at the popular fall Sheep & Wool Festival. I’m finally ready to share it with everyone.

This pullover is rich with textural details, incorporating cabled panels on every piece. A scoop neck, set in sleeves, and a slight A-line silhouette all add up to a classic, flattering sweater, perfect for wearing out or for cozying up with a mug of tea and a good book.

This garment is knit in pieces and seamed. The texture patterns include both written and charted instructions.
