The first of this years Rhinebeck Sweaters is the Dutchess Crew.  This was definitely a spur of the moment design while I was working through another design idea, but it quickly evolved into a pattern which emphasizes a beautiful balance between texture and playing with color.  This year was undoubtedly a year of simplicity for me while designing, but keeping patterns simple and classic, also allowed me to explore new techniques and garment construction that I had previously never explored before.

Dutchess Crew is a bottom up, slightly cropped, drop shoulder pullover that features Broken Rib and Garter Stitch.
