Jen Geigley for MDK Atlas: Cider Mill
I told you I had another Rhinebeck sweater in my sights this year, and hoo boy, it’s a good one. Fresh and hot, from the fun-loving, sweaterrific mind of Jen Geigley, here it is: Cider Mill.
A souvenir of the designer’s first time at the New York Sheep and Wool Festival in 2021, the yoke features beloved Rhinebeck elements: coffee cups, pan flutes, apple cider donuts and the fall leaves of the Dutchess County Fairgrounds. I am utterly charmed by the sweet simplicity of these motifs.
The yarn is MDK Atlas, using Truffle as the main color, with Cedar, Cork, Pebble, and Shale in the yoke.
Instant fall festival outfit—all you have to do is knit the sweater!
Bonus: Colorway Play
Jen’s photography sample may be the ultimate autumnal colorway. And the pattern includes a handy page for the knitter to play with color choices and placement. The possibilities are endless and SUCH FUN. So much fun, Allison, Hannah, Ashley, and Chris teamed up to dream up two alternate colorways.
Merlot (Main color) with Mouse, Pear, Skyline, and Leek
Peat (Main color) with Pebble, Seaglass, Lapis, and Barn Red
Surely I have time for a third Rhinebeck sweater this year—with its top-down, in-the-round construction, Cider Mill won’t take but a minute.
