Rhinebeck Sweater KAL

Lots of folks love the tradition of knitting a sweater to wear to the NYS Sheep and Wool Festival in Rhinebeck, New York!  We thought it would be fun to get together with you and knit a sweater in honor of Rhinebeck!  Whether you choose to wear yours at the festival on October 15 and 16, or at our own gathering here at The Endless Skein, we would love for you to join us in knitting a Rhinebeck sweater.  

The Endless Skein staff narrowed down the sweater choices to four patterns we love, and our customers voted for your favorite. The "winner" was clear:

Jessie Mae's Gr8 Gingham Raglan!

We hope you'll join us in knitting the Gr8 Gingham Raglan for our first annual Rhinebeck Sweater Knitalong (KAL)! Here's how it will work:
